The change of use application for the Cluny Centre, which was listed to be considered by the Council’s Development Management Sub Committee on Wednesday 20 June, was withdrawn from the agenda at the last minute and was therefore not considered. The application for listed building consent was granted.
The applicant has appealed to the Scottish Government’s Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) and this has now been formally lodged and listed. This is the reason given for the withdrawal of the application from the Council’s DM Sub Committee agenda. Details of the applicant’s submission to the DPEA can be found on the DPEA website www.dpea.scotland.gov.uk under reference PPA-230-2232.
Everyone who commented on the original application should be told about the appeal and all the comments submitted to the Council with regard to the application for change of use will be forwarded by the Council for consideration by the Scottish Government’s Reporter. They will also have the chance to give further comments to the reporter, subject to a deadline of 6 July.
Anyone who has not yet commented has until 6 July to do so. Comments should be sent direct to the DPEA either by email to the Case Officer Marie Buchanan on Marie.Buchanan@gov.scot or by post to The DPEA, 4 The Courtyard, Callendar Business Park, Falkirk FK1 1XR, quoting the case reference PPA-230-2232.
The DPEA will carry out a site visit and a decision is expected by 3 September.
