Developers are currently pressing East Dunbartonshire Council to move two Green Belt boundaries in South Lenzie – see mapsgreenbelt.  The purpose of this is to enable housing developments in these two areas, which have been cut off from the rest of the Green Belt by the Link Road.  The Council turned down the requests but the developers have petitioned the Directorate for Planning and Environmental Appeals (DPEA) to overturn the Council’s decision.  The decision of the Reporter appointed by DPEA will be final.

Any interested party can comment on these proposals – but comments have to be in before Monday 14th March.  More information is available at ‘local libraries’ and a resident adjacent to one of the areas has created a website with more information.  Click here for link to East Dunbartonshire Council’s response and GBPlanning for further publicity material issued by the Council Planning Department.  Scottish Executive have adopted a policy on control of woodland removal and retention which is useful to refer to as the DPEA has to take account of this.  See ‘event calendar’ for details of Public Meeting.

Lenzie Community Council has now discussed the Meadowburn and Claddens East proposals and agreed to prepare objections to both, in support of the East Dunbartonshire Council case against altering the Green Belt boundaries.
