Ambitious proposals have been unveiled for a new £33.8 million leisure-led development on the outskirts of Perth.

The proposals include a four-star hotel, lodge-style cabins, and a museum with exhibits that will “tell the story of transport and vehicles” over the past century.

The scheme is the brainchild of local plant machinery company Morris Leslie Ltd, with a site earmarked at West Kinfauns, which is where the company has its headquarters.

A proposal of application notice has been submitted to Perth and Kinross Council with a full planning application expected later in the year. The development should offer strong connections with Perth city centre, including active travel routes.

The site has been identified as a location for a proposed park and ride facility, which has planning consent, and the intention is to incorporate this in the overall development.

Council leader Murray Lyle said: “These plans, although at an early stage, are a significant vote of confidence in Perth and Kinross and our ambitious plans for the area, which include the redevelopment of Perth City Hall to house the Stone of Destiny and the creation of the Cross Tay Link Road.”
