Councillors tick approval box for ten houses on Carnoustie triangle

Planners have given the green light for ten new homes on an island of ground near Carnoustie High School.

The triangular Balmachie Road site is bounded by Shanwell Road and David Moyes Road and lies close to the setting for sports pitches where excavations revealed a treasure trove of ancient artefacts described as being of significant international importance.

An archaeological ‘watching brief’ was one of the conditions suggested by planning officials, who said the Gardyne Homes proposal would deliver a “distinctive development” on the 5,272 square metre site.

Plot sizes will vary from 300 sq. m. to 585 sq. m., with landscaping proposed for three corners of the site.

The application drew five letters of objection, raising issues including road safety concerns and the density of development on the site.

Objectors also requested double yellow lines around the site to prevent roadside parking in the vicinity of the busy area and development standards committee members were told that matter was governed by separate legislation and had been passed to the authority’s roads department.

A pedestrian pathway will run through the site.

Carnoustie Independent councillor David Cheape said: “I do have a concern of over-provision; initially it was for five houses and I think that number would probably be correct for this site.

“These are busy roads, even outwith school times when people are going to other clubs and so on.

“Double yellow lines were requested and all we can do is ensure that is investigated with roads.”

Arbroath SNP councillor Alex King said: “I was a bit concerned about the density but it is less t6han houses across the road and to the south, so that has convinced me it is a fairly good use of this land.”

The development sits within the Woodlands primary school catchment area and an educational contribution of £4,442 per house was also one of the conditions attached to the unanimous approval of the committee.
