An application to build five houses in an Angus hamlet has been rejected.

David Maxwell’s bid for the homes on land next to Bucklershead, near Kellas, was refused by Angus Council as the site is just outside the area’s development boundary.

The council also said there was a lack of public interest in building on the greenfield site as there is no social, economic, environmental or operational need for the homes on “prime agricultural land”.

The application, which was for five and six-bedroom homes, also prompted an objection from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, which argued the drainage arrangements were not acceptable.
