Residents who lost a bid to block contentious housing plans for land to the west of Perth are being urged to attend a community meeting so their concerns can be heard as the scheme moves forward.
The talks on Tuesday are being arranged by Methven Community Council to ensure the Almond Valley Village plans are held up to scrutiny.
A spokesman for the group said locals were determined to battle on to make their voices heard.
A master-plan for the 1,300-home estate, earmarked for land between Huntingtower and Ruthvenfield, was rejected three times by Perth and Kinross Council but was allowed after a successful appeal to the Scottish Government.
Savills, on behalf of the Pilkington Trust, has now submitted detailed plans to Perth and Kinross Council for permission to begin building the first stage of the development, featuring 340 homes and three shops.
Sports pitches, leisure features and a changing pavilion are also earmarked for the 130-acre site.
Tuesday’s session at the Huntingtower Hotel was requested by residents at the last community council meeting.
Chairman Kenneth Simpson urged anyone who still has concerns about the scheme to come forward so the group can raise them with the developers and the council.
“There would be too many houses being built and they will ruin the character of the area,” he said.
“There are hundreds of houses being given planning permission, and if there was an average of three people in each, that would be another city.”
Mr Simpson said there were also questions around issues such as green space, the need for trees and hedges to protect existing properties and the impact on services in the area.
He said: “If you double the number of people in Perth, we will need to get more staff in places such as Perth Royal Infirmary.”
NHS Tayside’s associate medical director Hamish Dougall has also expressed concerns in a comment on the application to Perth and Kinross Council.
He wrote: “This, and the surrounding developments, will add significant pressure to the already stretched health services in Perth.”
Savills did not respond to a request for comment, but in a supporting document for the application submitted to the council, the firm said applicants, agents and the technical project team would continue to engage with planners to ensure all technical details are addressed to allow the developments to begin.
The meeting will begin at 7pm.
