Conservative Councillor Angus Forbes has warned that scrapping the Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR) would lead to an increase in housing developments for the Carse of Gowrie.
The Councillor, who represents the Carse of Gowrie and is also Perth and Kinross Council's Convener of Environment and Infrastructure, said: "If Perth benefits, then the whole of Perth and Kinross benefits.
"The council has an obligation to provide land for housing, and this land is identified to the west of Perth and relies on the CTLR.
“If we can’t provide that land, the housing demand still exists and we will need to provide land someplace else. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that the Carse of Gowrie would be a likely place for that house building, given its proximity to Dundee."
