A Hotel for Lenzie

A Hotel for Lenzie

garn1The latest Planning proposal for the piece of ground alongside Woodilee Road at the foot of Garngaber Avenue is for a 28-bedroom hotel. You may remember that the previous proposal was for 8/9 houses and this was turned down on appeal to the Reporter, mostly on the grounds of possible damage to the health of protected trees.
A complicating factor was that the developer had jumped the gun somewhat and cut down a large number of not-protected trees which you can see on the right of the adjacent picture. Because these trees were removed without obtaining a licence, the Forestry Commission has imposed a requirement on the developer that these trees be replaced, albeit not in the same positions as original.

As of 11/4/18 this proposal appears to have been withdrawn.
