Community feedback sought on Kinross development proposals

MILLER Homes is to engage with the local community on proposals for a new residential-led development in Kinross.

An online consultation will be held on September 29, followed by an in-person event at the end of October.

The housebuilder is seeking planning permission in principle (PPiP) to deliver homes, including affordable housing, on land adjacent to the M90 to the west of the Kinross, between Gallowhill Road and Station Road.

The project will see a range of new homes delivered, offering a choice of two to five-bed properties.

Miller Homes said a key aspect of the consultation will be to explore how the community can shape the development and also establish what, in addition to the current proposed scheme, it would like to see as part of it.

Representatives of Miller Homes, plus the planning and architectural team, will be available to answer questions through a live online chat between 4pm and 8pm on September 29. Feedback forms will also be available online.

A second, in-person event is scheduled for the end of October and will feature exhibition material that will incorporate feedback and comments from the first event.

Arthur Mann, strategic land director for Miller Homes, said, “We’re delighted to provide the public with their first opportunity to view our exciting residential-led development in Kinross. Our initial proposals are part of an evolving discussion, and we are keen to ensure that everyone locally is fully involved in shaping the development and more crucially to establish what they would like to see as part of the scheme.

“The development has the potential to deliver significant benefits to Kinross, including a mix of much-needed affordable and private homes, ensuring that those who want to live in the town are able to. We are keen to hear people’s views and encourage the community to attend these events, raise any questions they may have and provide feedback.”
