A HOUSING development has been approved for the site of a former school in Drumchapel.
Glasgow’s planning applications committee has given Cruden Estates permission to build 48 properties on land beside Katewell Avenue and Kells Place, where Cleddans Primary School was located. The school closed in 1996.
There will be a mixture of two and three bedroom semi-detached and terraced houses.
A design document submitted with the application stated: “The proposal is for residential development on a brownfield site that will provide a viable and marketable development in Drumchapel.
“The approach to development will be sympathetic to the local area in terms of density, scale and massing; being consistent with local planning policy to create a development that contributes to the local environmental quality.
“The houses will be built to the highest standards of construction and energy efficiency using high quality materials.
“They will provide an attractive addition to the existing market for good quality family housing in Drumchapel. All dwellings proposed for the site will be provided with level access to the houses and gardens. All houses will have private gardens.”
