Thorny Hill Community Proposal

Thorny Hill Community Proposal is an exciting new pilot scheme for custom design self-build houses in Dunning which will include a community led initiative. 

The proposal has support from the Scottish Government and Perth & Kinross Council. The Council’s Housing and Communities Convener, Councillor Peter Barrett, said: “Right across Scotland there is a lack of suitable housing for people, especially in rural areas, and as a Council we are committed to improving that situation in Perth and Kinross.”

Alongside the self-build housing, we also have an opportunity to create a community asset at Thorny Hill. This land will be made available by the landowner, and we are intending to hold a series of community workshops to determine what the nature of this should be to make a positive impact on the Dunning community.

To make this project a success and develop to it’s full potential we hope to engage a wide range of participants to define a future Vision, Development Framework and Action Plan.

There will be a series of community engagements over the summer and an opportunity for you to make a contribution to the outcome of the project.
