Residents are fighting plans to build three blocks of flats at a Perth housing estate.
Construction firm GS Brown wants to transform an acre of vacant land off Allison Crescent, on the northern outskirts of the city.
The company scrapped its original plan for 27 flats at the site after a backlash from local residents.
But now its revised plan – reducing the number of properties to 26 – has come up against fresh opposition.
Locals are worried the new blocks will overshadow their homes and rob them of their privacy.
There are also concerns about a rise in traffic, with more than 50 parking spaces included in the design.
The site is near a new A85/A9 junction which is being built to unlock new development land at Bertha Park.
GS Brown general manager Martin Smith said: “The final phase of our Tulloch development was designed taking into consideration the positive response we have received to the flats nearing completion across the road.
“There have been a broad spectrum of purchasers who are delighted with the quality, high specification and spaciousness of their new homes.”
He added: “Following the original application for the final phase a positive meeting was held with the planning officer. His comments were taken on board and a revised proposal was submitted thus allowing the neighbouring properties to consider the amendments.
“We appreciate concerns have still been raised, many of which relate to points outwith our control, however it is our view that this proposal sits well within the development and is a positive response to the current housing market conditions.”
So far, the revised application has attracted 22 letters and e-mails from objectors, calling for the scheme to be scrapped.
In his letter to officials, resident Douglas Pymm said the GS Brown had failed to address concerns about privacy, the main complaint of residents in Pullar Terrace.
He said any infringement of private life could be seen as a violation of the European Human Rights Act.
“It is clear that these proposals would not serve to benefit the residents of Pullar Terrace, but would rather cause an increased inconvenience and upset to the natural progression of daily private life,” he said.
Another opponent said windows from two of the blocks would look directly into her kitchen and bedrooms. “The main reason for purchasing this house was the fact that we had no one looking over us,” she said. “Equally, I don’t want to look across to see others in their living and sleeping space.”
The company’s application will be brought before councillors for a final decision in the coming months.
