Resident’s concerns over business park

Following a consultation on a proposed business park on the outskirts of Carnoustie a reader has written in with some objections.

The project to build a series of offices, light manufacturing and storage facilities on land on the A930 opposite the former Carlogie House Hotel held a pre-application public consultation exhibition recently in St Bride’s Hall and the pre-application consultation itself ended on Monday.

He wrote: “Having carefully considered the application, I believe the proposal raises a series of pollution, accessibility, environmental and visual/aesthetic concerns.”

Mr Cooper’s concerns concentrated on the potential for water pollution given the business park’s siting on higher ground and an unmanageable increase in traffic.

He also suggested there was a lack of demonstrable external interest in creating a business park and the development of productive agricultural land was wasteful.

In addition there would be an unacceptable aesthetic impact and that more suitable sites in and around the town had been overlooked.

The letter of objection has been reproduced in full on our letters page on page 14.

Agents Emac Planning LLP were approached for a comment regarding the objections but were unable to provide one on behalf of their client before we went to press.
