How many affordable houses to rent

Not sure Sixties! 3000 houses being built I believe initially, then up to 10,000??? basically from Bertha Park, just before the A9 roundabout ( Caithness glass roundabout I used to describe it as) right around the River Almond to almost Methven! even Stanley is being subjected to 500 houses being built? my question is what the fucque is everyone going to do/work at? more importantly lets get them all full of Sanities;

Is it a secondary ? or whatever they are called nowadays.

It is on the left of the A9 to Inverness after Inveralmond roundabout and extends to tinkers encampment I think.

I believe the encampment is on the south side of the River Almond and the development is on the North side.

Access by the old bridge to the A9.

At least that's the way I cycled to Bertha loch.

Jings, is the tinkers camp still there?  60 odd years ago it was all tarpaulin tents with the odd broken down caravan not to mention the odd broken down horse.  I presume it is now luxury caravans and state of the art pick up trucks.

Good point re the employment issue.

Sure the school has started construction a month or 2 back.  Needs to be built before people start living in houses. (Planning condition)

The road project thats on the go past McD is using the 'housing' fields to gain soil for the A9 bridge crossing at McD.   Note that your new houses on Southern development won't have much soil cover on top of the clay as it is going to be stripped for the road improvements.  So I've heard.

Assuming the Scone future housing, which is not welcome by locals, will feed the new secondary school once the new link road will be extended out to Scone in next phase of road infrastructure.
