CALA Homes (West) has submitted a planning application for a new housing development in Lenzie.

The housebuilder’s application shows a mix of 48 private homes and 26 affordable homes on the site, which is located south of Blacklands Place.

East Dunbartonshire Council submitted a Proposal of Application Notice (PoAN) in July of last year. The site was allocated for housing development in the Council’s Local Development Plan that was adopted in February of this year. A pre-application consultation took place at Lenzie Tennis Club at the end of May.

Graham McNeil, Land Director for CALA Homes (West) said, “In submitting our planning application, we are showing our commitment to delivering a range and choice of high quality homes in this sought-after area of East Dunbartonshire.

“The homes will be in-keeping with their surrounding environment and will appeal to buyers looking for a spacious, contemporary home, just 15 minutes from the centre of Glasgow.”

He added, “There’s a real demand for housing in this very popular area and we are confident that our proposed development will meet that need.

“We are looking forward to progressing our plans for the site as we believe the development will also positively enhance the surrounding area.”

CALA is hopeful of a positive planning decision before the end of the year. If planning permission is granted, work is expected to start in summer 2018 with the first residents taking occupation by summer 2019.
