Plans lodged for residential-led development in Killearn

CALA Homes (West) has submitted a planning application with Stirling Council for a residential-led mixed-use development on the former Killearn Hospital site.

The proposals include 86 homes with ‘plentiful’ green space and a village green. CALA said ‘significant effort’ has been placed on ensuring the development is well connected to the village centre, with a new bus stop proposed to transport children to Balfron High School.

As part of the application there is an area for commercial space, which is earmarked for development. However, if approved, this part of the land would be developed separately from the homes and would follow at a later stage.

Andrew Duncan, land director at CALA Homes (West) said, “This is an important and exciting milestone for the development as we look to deliver a significant transformation to this part of Killearn. We have been working closely with Stirling Council over the past few months to ensure that we could remediate the former hospital site to a high standard, and we are pleased to now be in a confident position to progress with the application.

“Generally, we have received positive feedback from the community on our proposals and we are hopeful that we will get the opportunity to continue our vision and deliver a development that will benefit the area, local businesses and importantly, the people who want to live here.”
