Kilmacolm Meadow - West of Quarry Drive

After Inverclyde Council voted to 'approve' the proposed development in the Meadow we wrote to the Scottish Ministers to ask that this case be 'called in'  by them.  

This is a very rare option and is not used much by them.

 

However, they agreed with us (and others) and have called this case in and it will be determined by the DPEA Reporter now!

 

The Scottish Ministers also commented  "they consider the case raises issues of national significance with regard to the interpretation and application of Scottish Planning Policy, and in view of Inverclyde Council’s interest in the proposed development, to allow further scrutiny of the reasons for proposing to approve it as a significant departure from the
development plan."

At the time of writing a DPEA Reporter is examining all the details and will make a decision on this case.
