Perth and North Perthshire MP, Pete Wishart, has met Kevin Stewart MSP, Minister for Local Government and Housing, to discuss concerns over the Scone H29 planning application.

Commenting after the meeting on Thursday 29th June, Mr Wishart said:

This was a really useful meeting which allowed me to put the views of Scone residents across to the Minister. I was able to discuss my concerns about such a new Planning Management Committee taking the decision to approve this application amongst many other issues.

“The Minister is aware of the many issues surrounding this application but is somewhat constrained given the application is still ‘live’.

“Reassuringly there is the opportunity within The Planning (Scotland) Act 2006 for an assessment of Perth and Kinross Council Planning Authority’s performance and decision making.

“I am very much looking forward to receiving the Ministers full response to the concerns raised.
