Planners have given the go-ahead to 20 new luxury chalets at Piperdam in the latest seven-figure investment at the resort.
Angus Council approved the near-£2 million project which owner Coppergreen Developments hopes will boost visitor numbers by 8,000 annually, generating an additional £300,000 for the local economy.
The Sheffield-based company bought Piperdam, at Fowlis near Dundee, and the adjacent Blacklaw Estate in a £25m deal in late 2016, with £2m invested in the facility in the first year of ownership.
The new chalets will be built immediately to the south of the majority of the existing lodges on ground formerly used as a golf driving range.
In its supporting submission, Piperdam said: “When complete, this project will create 15 full-time positions and generate a further ongoing spend of £500,000 per annum for local businesses, including cleaning and laundry services and food and drink companies.”
