    Story

    We are RAGE (Residents Against Greenbelt Erosion), a local group who have been trying to protect the greenbelt at Park of Keir from housing development for over 25 years.

    The latest application was rejected by Stirling Council in 2015. The developer is using local sporting celebrities, Judy Murray and Colin Montgomerie as "Trojan horses” to front a sports complex & housing development claiming it is of “national importance." It has forced us to go through a 3rd public enquiry.

    The total legal bill is £10,000. We have fundraised £8500 thanks to the generosities of all of our supporters. There is a shortfall of £1500 is needed urgently. We won't be able to do it without your help.

    Park of Keir is a designed historic Greenbelt separating the two distinct communities of Bridge of Allan and Dunblane. These hills, fields and woods are highly visible and valued as an undeveloped green space.

    There is overwhelming public opposition to the proposed development of a new tennis and golf centre, 150 bed hotel and luxury housing.

    The proposal to build here is the result of chance. Judy Murray knows the landowner who has been trying to get permission to build houses on this Greenbelt for two decades. The fact that the applicants, Park of Keir Partnership, will not consider the project without the luxury houses says it all.

    There are 59 tennis courts and 19 golf clubs within 15-mile radius of Park of Keir.
    There is NO evidence of research on the need for the sporting complex and there are top class facilities just 3 miles away at the Scottish National Tennis Centre
    There is NO evidence of a demand for a golf centre.
    There is NO evidence that this sporting complex should be at this particular Greenbelt location.
