Taymouth Castle Estate Walking Access Routes
DLC has been in dialogue with PKC regarding Condition 33 and specifically to the request to temporarily restrict public access along the core path network to the south of Taymouth Castle in the interests of health and safety. This is to enable development work at both the castle and surrounding golf course to continue with the golf course works having recently been approved under Condition 42 of permission 11/00533/FLM. Given the extent and nature of the golf course works and the upcoming landscaping works around the castle the Planning Authority are content that temporarily restricting access along the core path to the south of the Castle Estate is acceptable.
Therefore, the Planning Authority are content to agree to the temporary arrangements outlined in documents 11/00533/648, 649, 650 and 651 as displayed on the ePlanning portal under condition 33 of the permission until September 2024.
DLC has said that it will ensure appropriate signage is put in place for both the local community and visitors to the area to make users aware of the restrictions which exist on the path network. This will include signage within Kenmore village at the western end of the estate of the “dead end”.
