Stirling Council Coronavirus Update

Tulloch Homes and Persimmon Homes were seeking planning permission in principle for the major development on land next to Pirnhall and Bannockburn.

Their proposals include:

  • Up to 800 new homes (25% affordable)
  • Local retail/commercial uses
  • A primary school
  • A park and ride facility
  • A golf facility.

On Tuesday (23 June), Stirling Council’s Planning and Regulation Panel approved the plans, subject to a full application and a Section 75 Agreement. 

At the same meeting, the Panel also gave conditional approval for a significant office development next to the River Forth, Kildean, Stirling.

The plans include:

  • A three storey office building
  • Parking for 280 cars
  • Coach and cycle parking
  • Extensive landscaping and planting to create green infrastructure and encourage biodiversity.

The application was approved subject to a number of conditions, the conclusion of a Section 75 Agreement or an alternative agreement to secure financial contributions to the City Area Transport Plan, and the delivery of the pedestrian/cycle paths.

The reports and conditions for both applications can be downloaded as a PDF.
