We are really pleased that our proposal for 12 affordable live-work eco-homes in Tomintoul received planning permission by the Cairngorms National Park Authority on Friday.
The proposed houses are modern, but they have traditional proportions and replace an unsightly 1960 school which left a gap in the distinctive streetscape of Tomintoul. The houses will have Photovoltaic panels, air-source heat-pumps and Sunamp thermal energy stores. Each house will have an electric vehicle charging point, and the proposed landscaping scheme will enhance the bio-diversity on the site. Some houses are designed to as live work units to encourage home working and provide opportunities for new rural businesses. None of this would have been possible without the efforts of our clients the #Tomintoul and Glenlivet Development Trust and at #Alpha Projects. We are also grateful for the particularly positive and co-operative attitude of the local planning authority and the local community generally.
