Plans for the new Madras College have taken a major step forward with the submission of a detailed planning application for a new roundabout on the A91 to the west of the St Andrews on the 31st of October 2017. The application, submitted by the St Andrews West LLP, also includes a road with pedestrian and cycle paths through the North Haugh. This roundabout and road will provide access to Langlands, the site earmarked for the new school and will also be part of a link road.
The application, reference 17/03467/FUL, can be viewed on the Council’s website through the following link;
Detailed consideration has been given in the preparation of the application through tree, ecology, engineering, and flood risk assessments.
Speaking on behalf of the St Andrews West LLP, David Wardrop of Wardrop Strategic Planning said “The LLP are delighted to be submitting this application now. The LLP’s team have undertaken a wide ranging and detailed assessment of the characteristics of the North Haugh area before arriving at the most appropriate location for the roundabout and route for the road. The proposals allow the retention and enhancement of the existing pond along with replacement tree planting and ecological improvements.”
It is hoped that planning permission will be granted in the early new year allowing site preparation work to begin in early spring.
