A9 Truck Stop + Fuel Station approved

Text drafted by Pete Bicheno, Glassingall Resident

Stirling Council's planning committee meeting on the 4th August 2020 approved this controversial plan. After discussing the application and spending much time on the dangers of this stretch of road the four Conservative councillors suddenly did an about turn and approved the planning application.

The meeting was recorded and made available for anyone to watch but has since been removed from the Council's website. Councillor Majury does have the video on his website.

A petition has been lodged in the Court of Session challenging this decision. Interestingly the planning officer recommended turning down the proposal on seven grounds. Most of the documents about this application have been removed from the council website but the planning officer's report (panel report) with a recommendation to reject is available here.

Perth councillors and local residents on both sides of the border are concerned. See the Courier 12 October 2020
