Green light for new Glasgow east development

MERCHANT Homes has been granted planning permission for a new 106-home residential development in Glasgow.

Lochwood Gardens, located at Stepford Road, just north of the city’s Edinburgh Road, will comprise a mix of two, three and four-bedroom detached, semi-detached and terraced homes.

Initial plans include the development of a nature garden and a play area as part of the new neighbourhood, which will boast views of Cathkin Brae.

Linda McLuskie, sales and marketing director for Merchant Homes said, “This is an exciting milestone for what will be a truly unique development for Glasgow east. Stepford Road is a prime location within the city and we look forward to creating a brand new community there. With a variety of housetypes – some of which are a first for Merchant Homes – we are confident the development will be a popular choice with a wide range of prospective new homebuyers, from those taking their first steps onto the property ladder, to those with growing families who are looking to secure a step up.

“We look forward to releasing more details of our plans for Lochwood Gardens as they progress.”

Work on the new development will begin this month, with the launch of the first phase of homes expected to be released in May.
