Development opportunity in a well-positioned central location with views over the River Tay, Perth and further afield.

About this property

  • The site for sale is located to the south east of Perth and extends to an approximate area of 2.3 acres (0.9 ha). The development opportunity has a well-positioned central location but also benefits from mature woodland / walled boundaries and views over the River Tay, Perth and further afield. The site was the location of the former Hillside Hospital which has now been demolished. The site slopes down from east to west providing an attractive outlook west. To the north of the subjects is the remainder of the former Hillside Hospital site which benefits from planning permission for a care home (see Planning section). The care home development will form a vehicular access from Dundee Road which will also serve the subject site. Full details on the progression of this development are available from the sales agent. To the east and south of the site are large detached residential properties within the leafy suburb of Barnhill. To the west of the site is a footpath on the banks of the River Tay then the river itself over which the Dundee and Perth Railway line runs.

Local information

Additional information

  • While the subject site does not have planning permission the remainder of the former Hillside Hospital site (north) has recently received approval for the following ‘detailed’ application:
  • Ref: 20/01779/FLL
  • Description: Erection of a care home, formation of vehicular access, parking areas and associated works
  • Decision: Approved 01/06/2021
  • The application proposes a 77-bed care home with high quality accommodation, communal area and leisure facilities. Vehicular access is to be taken from Dundee Road with the proposed entrance allowing access into the site for sale.
  • The site for sale is included within the approved application’s illustrative masterplan as residential – 50 flats across 4 apartment blocks. While this application has been approved, the residential proposals are not included within this consent which only relates to the care home, as outlined in Condition 17.
  • The subject site will therefore require planning permission prior to development.
  • The wider former Hillside Hospital site has also received approval for the following planning application: Ref: 06/01241/FUL
