Letter: Concerns over traffic to new hotel

Planning permission has been granted to build a hotel and houses off Belvedere Parade.
Planning permission has been granted to build a hotel and houses off Belvedere Parade.

The golf club might be delighted that full planning permission has been passed for the building of a hotel and houses off Belvedere Parade. Our main concerns are the traffic.

The traffic survey done in 2014 showed that over 500 cars per day were using this cul-de-sac.

Not many were speeding, but the parameters for this are nonsense.

With expansion plans this will escalate dramatically.

The option would be for a new road off Belvedere Parade.

The golf club could then have a road to themselves.

We were told at the meeting at the golf club in January 2016 that speed bumps would be an option to slow the traffic but we know that highways will not sanction this.

No consideration in the planning has been given to the detrimental effect on those who live down this road.

Was a feasibility study done to find out if the proposed hotel will be profitable. Gleneagles it is not.
