A DEVELOPER is drawing up plans for housing on green belt land on Glasgow’s eastern edge.
Avant Homes is proposing several hundred homes on a site south of Lochend Road, beside Easterhouse.
Pre-application consultation is underway.
The site is designated in Glasgow’s City Development Plan as Lochend Community Growth Area.
The developer states: “The proposal is for residential development together with associated engineering, infrastructure, landscaping, and open space. The final scale of the development will be subject to the outcome of further analysis following public consultation.
“The indicative capacity for the site is around 300 new homes.
“On the northwest, north, and northeast of the site lies a proposed extension to Local Nature Reserve (LNR).”
Amenity open space would act as a buffer between development and ecologically sensitive areas.
The land is north of the much larger Commonhead Community Growth Area, currently subject of a planning application to the city council.
