A popular Highland Perthshire venue has been forced to cancel a series of live music nights, after Perth and Kinross Council refused permission for its marquee.
Food In The Park, near Blair Atholl, has been using a tent to host gigs since 2016, while bosses develop plans for a more permanent building.
They have welcomed big name stars such as Big Country and Dougie MacLean.
Temporary planning permission for the marquee, which was secured in 2016, has now expired and proprietors Sally Judd and David Mckenzie applied for a time extension.
However, the bid was rejected by planners after several complaints from local residents and holiday home owners.
A total of 29 complained about the application, claiming it was “out of character” and the noise from late night shows was a nuisance for locals.
Concerns were also raised about anti-social behaviour and litter.
Planning chiefs received 17 emails backing the scheme, however. Supporters said it enhanced the character of the area and supported tourism.
Food In The Park said it will reapply for the extension, but conceded it probably did not have a music venue for 2020.
“We have come to the very difficult decision of cancelling most of our live music gigs already booked,” a spokesperson said.
“We are obviously extremely sorry for this decision and we do appreciate that this is not the best news for all our supporters.”
Gigs by Toploader, Los Pacaminos and Skerryvore will go ahead in alternative, local venues.
