Auchentibber Farm Estate

A significant plan to save the historic Auchentibber Farm Buildings and develop the surrounding area has been lodged with South Lanarkshire Council.

A consultation phase is now underway which seeks input, suggestions and comments from everybody in our community and to present plans to establish a working agricultural estate, renovate the fire damaged farmhouse, providing a new family home and to return the land to the farming use it once had.

Barton Willmore (on behalf of the estate owners) have lodged a proposal of ‘application notice’ and it should be noted it’s not yet a planning application.

Due to covid19, the consultation requires to be held online and full details can be found at :  https://www.auchentibber.co.uk

Its hoped that all comments from the public can be taken on board before any official submission to planning progresses.

Key Aspects of the Consultation

A live interaction day is planned online on Friday 5th June 2020 between 10am and 4pm where members of the project team will be available to respond to questions submitted.

Further information may be obtained from Barton Willmore Agents at auchentibber@bartonwillmore.co.uk or by phoning 07795 192 704.

Following our own intervention and some like minded colleagues, we have to say sincere thanks to Barton Willmore over the last week in considering and changing the proposed name from ‘Caldergrove Estate’ to Auchentibber Farm Estate. The name is wholly more appropriate, protecting Blantyre history and heritage and its great to see the landowners listening right from the onset.

Speaking to members of the community, the news also comes as a relief that the land won’t be used for a private housing estate and instead will remain green, open and being used for agriculture, a return to its original use. With over 6 miles of fencing already erected, it’s hoped this will significantly also reduce fly tipping in High Blantyre.

The public consultation will be open until 26th June 2020.
