Moray Council consults on 172-home residential development
Moray Council has today launched an eight-week consultation on its plan to construct 172 houses in the Dallas Dhu area on the outskirts of Forres.

The council said the development was landscape-led, to make the most of the natural features on site, half of which will remain undeveloped. A spokesman for the council said: “This will be a very attractive area to live if the plan it is approved.”

Following the consultation, the plans would require approval from the Scottish government for the development to go ahead.

The plan includes the following key elements:

  • A strong frontage onto Mannachie Road punctuated by green wedges
  • A central tree-lined spine street providing visual and physical connectivity through the site
  • Improved access onto the Dava Way and a permeable network of pedestrian and cycle path connections
  • Provision of a range of housing densities and tenures to reflect the edge-of-town location
  • Large areas of green space and wetland habitat

As part of the consultation a drop-in exhibition will be held at Forres House Community Centre on Wednesday, March 8. Comments on the draft masterplan must be submitted by 5pm on Monday, March 27. Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west.
