As you may or may not be aware, there is a proposal with Perth & Kinross Council asking for planning permission to extend the open-cast quarry operations at Marlee, to the east of Palace Road, for the next 17 years, excavating 75,000 tons of material each year. This map shows in red the site of the proposed quarry, with its shadow superimposed on a map of Blairgowrie for reference.
