Our Response to the Sandyford Student Flats Appeal


14th November 2018

Our Chair, has written to MSP Sandra White in relation to the student flats being built in Sandyford Street.

There is a Planning Bill currently going through its later stages in the Scottish Parliament and it appears that the Scottish government is still setting its face against a Community Right of Appeal, influenced by the claims of developers that it would clog up the system, leading to longer delays in getting decisions.

If every intended community appeal was sifted through the Planning Reporters’ office, to eliminate those that were not properly related to the local or other plan governing the original application, and even with the applicant given the right to be heard, this would be sufficient.

This is better than the present situation where we (the Community) have no come back and must remain silent.

Let us know your thoughts
