PREAPP for MediSpa, Invergowrie.Allan Mudie
We have submitted this proposal for an extension to an existing Spa business to Perth and Kinross Council for a PREAPP.
A PREAPP is a useful way of inviting comment from a Local Authority in advance of making an application for Planning Approval without the usual time and costs of doing so. This way it is possible to garner the likelihood of support for an application and which relevant Policies will require to be met in order to obtain a positive determination.
The proposal intends to extend out in to the garden ground of the existing Listed Building, which can be a difficult pill for the bods at Historic and Environment Scotland to swallow as the “setting” of a Listed Building is paramount. In this case, we propose a low extension that will be concealed within the existing landscaped grounds and will be finished with organic materials to appear to sit subserviently to the existing Listed Building. Our position is that the setting of the Listed Building will therefore have minimal compromise.
