Plans to diversify and expand facilities are being developed to ensure a sustainable future for the Murrayshall Estate.

The hotel is striving to build a more resilient business that is able to thrive in a competitive post-Covid leisure and tourism market. There is a need for investment in the estate for diversification and innovation, to ensure that the hotel adapts to meet modern consumer demands and expectations, and to compete with alternative destinations.

Planning Permission for the principle of a mixed-use development at the Site was granted 13th December 2023 (application ref. 23/00833/IPM). The approved description of development is as follows:

“Mixed-use development comprising spa and leisure facility including ancillary food and drink; holiday accommodation including lodges luxury units and timeshare/ vacation ownership properties extension to hotel central delivery hub for deliveries staff facilities and relocated greenkeeping services outdoor pursuits small-scale residential conversion of existing greenkeepers compound and associated works including photovoltaic array servicing access drainage and landscaping.”

Phase one of the detailed development of the proposals will seek to deliver the erection of self-catering holiday lodges, spa and leisure facilities, the erection of glamping pods, and the formation of a central delivery hub for deliveries and green keeping services with associated access, drainage, and landscaping. Proposals are currently being developed with respect of the sitting, scale and design of the proposed development.

We welcome your feedback, these valuable comments will help to shape and inform how we progress the detailed design of the proposals.

The aim of the proposal is to secure the long-term sustainable future of the Estate and its positive impact on local tourism and the local economy, including employment and businesses. Delivery of a premium leisure-based destination as intended will draw tourism to the area on a local and national basis, complementing the range of activities and facilities available in Perth and the surrounding area.
