A new bid for planning permission to build 18 private houses beside Montrose House in Brodick has been lodged with planning officials on what is presently farmland.
Planning permission in principle is being sought for a residential development of 16 houses, an access road and detailed planning permission for two houses in Glen Cloy.
The proposals by Charles Fforde of Arran Estates are almost identical to an application he submitted a year ago for the same site, but which was later withdrawn.
Detailed drawings have been submitted for two of the plots with a detailed design guide for the potential developers of the other plots.
Part of the design guidelines state: ‘It is hoped that owners will create their own individual houses to meet their personal requirements and tastes, creating an overall development of unique houses of a high design quality.
‘Following this guidance will ensure an element of commonality which will avoid a piecemeal development as well as ensuring that the amenity of the overall development is enhanced with consequent benefit to all the owners.’
