Cluny Centre Change of Use Appeal

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which was listed to be considered by the Council’s Development Management Sub Committee on Wednesday 20 June, was withdrawn from the agenda at the last minute and was therefore not considered.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
