Angus Rural Mobility Hub - Public Consultation
The Angus Rural Mobility Hub will be a first in Scotland, presenting an opportunity to showcase the potential that exists in Brechin and the Glens as a place to live, learn and work.
Environmental, economical and technical assessments are underway. These will be concluded during the summer (August 2023) to inform the outcomes, for public consultation in September.
These responses will shape a planning application for submission in the autumn (October 2023) and associated technical consents with a target decision March 2024.
In parallel will be the procurement and skills strategy to enable the infrastructure to be tendered in the spring (May 2024) and site start in the summer (July 2024) for operation end of 2024.
Angus Council and Dalhousie Estates have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, entering into an agreement to work together to develop a clean growth business park, with supporting infrastructure, in Brechin, Angus.
Angus Council’s ambition, along with the private sector, is to deliver an Angus Rural Mobility Hub, within a regional business park to provide the infrastructure, services and skills programme needed to enable the Tay region’s transition to a low carbon, inclusive economy through a range of smart mobility and energy services.
Angus Rural Mobility Hub has the potential to deliver a step change in clean transport infrastructure on the national trunk road network and in doing so, create skills and new career opportunities within Angus and the Tay Region.
