New proposals for Pirnhall site put forward

Proposals for a commercial property development have been put to Stirling Council planners, it has emerged.

Coming on the heels of previous applications to develop the site, the office building and leisure facility complex has been conceived by RJM Development’s Scottish arm.

The site has previously been put under consideration for development by United Auctions, the Stirling Observer reports, but the firm’s bid was turned down because it did not provide details of enhanced road safety measures on a nearby roundabout.

RJM Developments, possibly having learnt from the lessons provided by the previous proposals’ rejection, told the Observer that it was "consulting fully with the relevant authorities" over the plans.

Meanwhile, Stirling Council has granted planning permission for a £10 million auction market in the area to United Auctions.

The planning bid for the property will now be elevated to the Scottish Executive for further consideration.
