Planning Consultation Meeting

The Council had invited residents to a special planning consultation meeting on 15 February to discuss three current planning applications. Notes of the meeting are here.

Latest Castle Planning Application

An application has been submitted by Taymouth Castle Estate to put new golf course maintenance buildings on the land at the bottom of Taymouth Drive. Some of this land has already been prioritised for housing under the Perth and Kinross Local Development Plan. The Community Council is discussing details of the application with the developers and are happy to pass on your questions.

Sand movement from Inchadney

The haulage of sand from Inchadney to the castle golf course has started. Loads will be running from Inchadney through the castle east gate. It is planned to temporarily open up the new west access, for sand hauling vehicles only, from Monday 5 February, (weather permitting), minimising haulage vehicles on the A827. At the west gate, there are vehicle and pedestrian gates, manned, throughout the west access construction period, for health and safety reasons and to ensure public safety at the temporarily diverted core path. Loads are limited to 30 trucks per day and must follow all of the conditions (eg restricted ooperating hours) set out in the planning consent. Drivers have been advised to manage speed and be extra careful. In the event of an emergency or for any direct contact with the contractor, please contact Kevin Cross of Cross Civils & Construction Services Ltd, on 07484 143688 or email

Quiz night success

The first Breadalbane Reading Room quiz on 18 January was a runaway success with 36 souls braving the freezing conditions to test their knowledge. A blazing fire kept the place cosy and a friendly and cheeerful atmosphere prevailed. A little over £300 was raised for the fund. A follow up quiz is planned for March. The event followed another highly successsful Warm Welcome event that day at the rooms, with hot soup on the menu to add to the coffe, tea and cakes. Well done alll the volunteers involved. Tickets for a follow up quiz on 8 March sold out rapidly.
