The application put forward by Carnoustie’s Brunton Design on behalf of West One Residential Ltd. includes a glass box seating area attached to the side of the listed building looking directly into the graveyard.

The Howff, which first opened in 1564, is classed as an A listed building by Historic Environment Scotland.

It consists of 1,750 stones, and is generally considered to be one of the most important collections of tombstones in Scotland. The last burial took place in 1857.
