Planning Permission Secured by SHP at Craig of Stenton, Perthshire

SHP (Scott Hobbs Planning), working alongside McLaren, Murdoch & Hamilton Architects, have secured planning permission for the erection of a replacement dwellinghouse and garage at Craig of Stenton Farm, east of Dunkeld. The site is currently occupied by a small farmhouse at the northern side of the site together with a stone / brick-built steading building at the southern side of the site.  The site sits in rising hillside and is surrounded by mature woodland planting on the east and south sides of the site. The proposal involves the refurbishment and extension of the existing dwelling, demolition of the existing steading and its replacement with a new build development which will connect to the refurbished house through the creation of a two-storey link structure.  The new build element is to be built on the footprint of the demolished steading and will result in the creation of a large scale new traditionally proportioned dwelling on the site. A detached garage is also proposed.

SHP gains permission for 25 new apartments in Edinburgh

Scott Hobbs Planning (SHP) has secured approval on appeal for 25 new apartments at 27 Lanark Road, Edinburgh, on behalf of Thistle Residential Ltd. The site consists of the vacant and boarded former Blue Goose Public House and is located opposite the Water of Leith visitor centre.

Working alongside ISA Architects, SHP provided advice throughout the process, submitting an application to City of Edinburgh Council in June 2018. Recommendation from officers to approve was overturned by Planning Committee in February. The DPEA agreed that despite the site’s location within the green belt, the development would “deliver a number of significant benefits” to justify approval and the provision of a commuted sum payment was justified, based on the evidence provided.
