The proposal is to site the Visitor Centre with its associated car and coach parking on land between the A905 and the driveway to the Pineapple. The Visitor Centre is then only a short walk to the Pineapple making this an attractive and easily accessible destination to encourage visitors to stay longer in the area. The development of bungalows sits on the west facing side of the ridge which runs parallel to the A905, not visible from the road. A new roundabout junction and re-alignment of the B9124 not only provides access to the Visitor Centre, but also provides an improved standard of road serving the development of bungalows. Due to the semi-rural nature of the site, landscaping will form an important part of the setting of both the Visitor Centre and bungalows. Airth itself is a picturesque historic village and the wider natural landscape is noteworthy. It is intended that low-key but high-quality building forms are adopted taking their cue from local vernacular from the village itself and surrounding rural agricultural buildings.
