A PLANNING application seeking permission for holiday lodges near Loch Thom has been withdrawn.
The proposal, submitted to Inverclyde Council in November last year, involved rough grassland sloping down to the compensation reservoir from Cornalees Farm in the countryside between Greenock and Inverkip.
Twelve single-storey lodges each with two to three bedrooms were proposed. They were to be accessed via a new single track road with passing places from the adjacent public road. The development was to include a small building for administration and servicing of the lodges.
Inverclyde’s planning website now indicates that the application has been withdrawn meaning officials will not be issuing a decision on the proposal. No reason is given for the change of heart and there is no indication as to whether revised proposals will be lodged. Seven public objections had been made against the plan.
Planning consent was previously granted for the conversion of the farmhouse to two houses and the conversion of redundant barns, also into two houses.
