Stirling Council has approved outline permission for a development of about 800 homes near Bannockburn.

Tulloch Homes and Persimmon Homes applied for planning permission in principle for the proposals earmarked for a 38-hectare site on land next to Pirnhall and Bannockburn. The site includes a family golf centre, car park, as well as a horse-trotting track and farmland.

The scheme involves up to 800 new homes (25 per cent affordable), local retail/commercial uses, a primary school and both a park-and-ride facility and a golf facility.

The area is allocated for housing and retail use in the local development plan. Approval of  the development is subject to a full application and a section 75 agreement.
