9 Dec 2013:

Anderson Bell Christie’s design guidance for Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park was commended in the 2013 Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning. The judges awarded this commendation because “over the time that the design guide has been operating (four years) it has proved to be a tested example of good policy being applied in practice. The guide has been influential and helped to enhance design, particularly for houses in the countryside, and has been respected by many applicants and developers as a way of providing clarity on what it, or is not, acceptable”.

Johnstone Community Sports Hub
This new development is intended to provide Johnstone High School with a new “civic” focal point.

This new sports hub provides a high quality landmark and community hub.
