Shelloch Windfarm Approved

From Councillor Martin Earl

Dear All,

I am advising both Community Councils of the outcome of the Planning Hearing to determine the Shelloch Windfarm application that took place yesterday.

The application was approved by the planning panel.  Their meetings are held online via MS teams. I have attached a copy of the report to committee by the planning officer and a copy of my presentation for your information.

I am extremely disappointed not only in the outcome but also the process that took place that to my mind impedes good quality presentations by those wanting to raise objections or concerns – external input is only allowed by phone call so one cannot present graphics and has to read out a submission.

Mobile Library Timetable

Please see the timetable for January and February 2022.

The proposal concerns land North West Of And At Burnside Works Main Street Thornhill.
More information can be found on the Stirling Council Planning website at https://pabs.stirling.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=R30NNMPIJ0E00

Community councils have a statutory right to be consulted on applications for planning permission and represent the local viewpoint on developments.
Thornhill & Blairdrummond Community Council are hosting an open meeting online this Wednesday evening (15th Dec), contact ThornhillBlairdrummondCC@gmail.com for the joining instructions

There are a couple of things to note:

  • There are 47 documents in total so you may want to concentrate on the areas which affect you most or which you have expertise in.
  • The deadline for comments to the Planning Department is 30th December which doesn’t give us much time to study the documents. However, the Community Council has requested an extension to this deadline so I will inform you if it is granted.
  • As Thornhill residents you have the right to comment on this planning application either directly to the Planning Department or via the Community Council. TCT will also develop a response based on your feedback.

Please respond to chair@thornhillstirling.org if you would like your views included in the TCT response.
