Proposed Local Development Plan

Perth & Kinross Council has issued the Proposed Development Plan for the area. The first draft of the Plan was put out to consultation at the end of 2010 and the FVA, along with several Fearnan householders, submitted comments in early 2011. The Council states that “The Plan will influence the location and form of new development by providing a basis for determining planning applications up to the year 2024.”

So it is really important that we continue to engage with it, and with the process, before the Plan is finalised.  The new Proposed Development Plan can be accessed through the P&KC web site by going to   (Please note that the P&KC website can be unresponsive at times.)

There is now a 10-week consultation period ending 10th April and, during this period, comments on the proposed plan can be submitted.

Consultation events are taking place throughout Perth and Kinross. There is one at Aberfeldy, in the Breadalbane Campus, on Saturday 3rd March between 10am and 3.30pm. This event will provide an opportunity to see the proposed plans for the area and to discuss them with council staff.

Both the area in Fearnan affected by the Plan and the scale of development that might be permitted have been reduced in this new version, but development of the village is still being proposed. The Plan will be an agenda item at the FVA Annual General Meeting on 3rd March at 4.30pm in the village hall.

About Fearnan Village Association

Fearnan Village Association was formed in 2007 to provide a means through which those who live in the village can come together to discuss and respond to issues of importance to the village, particularly those that will have an impact on our quality of life. We also organise social events, such as the very popular Pudding Night in February, Strawberry TeaZ in July, and other events and coffee mornings throughout the year.

    This is the serious side of the FVA and there are people who will be seriously affected by these proposals and who need our support – so please can we have your support. To represent our members we need to hear from you.
