A planning application could soon be submitted to Angus Council for housing and retail units close to the A92 at Muirdrum.

A firm called Marina Developments has lodged a proposal of application notice for both homes and shops near to the main dual carriageway.

And they intend to submit a full planning application but will first hold a public consultation event next week.

The submission has been made by Alistair Fitchet of AJ Fitchet Architect based in Broughty Ferry on behalf of Marina Developments.

As part of the pre-application process, an event will be held at Carnoustie Library on Monday (August 5) between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Here local people will be able to look at the proposal for the site, with the agent acting on behalf of the applicant there to answer any question people may have.

The plans will also remain on show in the library on Tuesday (August 6).

Comments can also be left in writing at the public event, or in writing to their agent’s e-mail address (see below) no later than September 2.

It is thought the development will have an emphasis on green design and the developer hopes to incorporate environmentally friendly features.

These include solar powered street lights and a pond for rainwater.

Last year a plan to create a petrol station and a convenience store at Muirdrum was also sumbitted to Angus Council for consideration.

However, members of the local authority’s development standards committee decided to reject the plans.

Further details on the new proposals for the village by Marina Developments can can also be obtained by contacting the agent 07939540054 or e-mailing

Written representations must only be made to the agent at this time and will be received up until Monday, September 2.

If the applicant chooses to make a planning application, at that point the public may make any formal representations to Angus Council.
