HOUSING Development Proposed For Former Drumchapel School Site

12 October, 2023 | News

PLANS have been brought forward for nearly 70 houses and flats in Drumchapel.

The development by Wheatley Homes would be at Abbotshall Avenue on the former Antonine Primary School site.

There would be 67 units, comprising 31 town houses, eight cottage flats, and a block of 28 flats.

A design statement submitted with the planning application explains: “The proposals aim to provide much-required housing for affordable rent in the area.

“The housing and flat mix provides a variety of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes.

“The development’s scale, massing and materiality have been carefully considered in response to the existing site context, with an aim to reflect the area’s wider character and to make a sustainable contribution to its continuing development.”

It continues: “The proposed housing will also be designed to be highly sustainable and energy efficient, not only minimising the carbon footprint of the development but also reducing living costs for potential residents.

“In addition, the landscape proposals have been designed to improve the biodiversity of the area as well as providing additional outdoor amenity space for residents and the wider community.”
