Housebuilder provides first glimpse of plans for Killearn development

CALA Homes (West) has released CGI imagery showing the first glimpse of its proposals for a residential-led development on the grounds of the former Killearn Hospital.

The illustration shows how the derelict site will be transformed into a community that the housebuilder said incorporates ‘plentiful green space and complements its rural location’.

CALA’s planning application, submitted to Stirling Council earlier this year, includes 89 new homes of varying types. Designs include three new bespoke house types developed especially for the site.

As part of the application there is an outline proposal for an area of mixed-use development, which could lead to future commercial usage. A care home and office and retail units have also been earmarked for the site.

Andrew Duncan, land director at CALA Homes (West) said, “We’re proud of our vision for Killearn and we hope our new CGI illustration provides an insight into our exciting plans for the site. Killearn is a beautiful place to live, and our proposals will ensure there is a wider variety of housing available to support the local community as their needs change. In keeping with the rural character of the site, our plans include ample green space and would also create a new village green and play area.

“We’re encouraged by the positive feedback we’ve had from the local community to date and we’re confident we can deliver a development that will benefit the area, local businesses and importantly, the people who want to live here.”
