Planning permission granted for 81-home Dumbarton site

ADVANCE Land Regeneration has secured planning permission from West Dunbartonshire Council to develop a five-hectare site on Cardross Road in Dumbarton.

Working in partnership with Miller Homes (West) Scotland, the site – formerly occupied by St Michael’s Primary School and Notre Dame Convent – will deliver 81 new homes.

Advance Land Regeneration, together with planning consultants and masterplanners Barton Willmore, and consultant engineers Dougall Baillie Associates, revealed it has spent the past year working with the council’s planning department to ensure the layout responds to the ‘challenging constraints’ within the site.

Work will start shortly to develop a new community comprising a mix of two-storey housing alongside open space, a play area, landscaping and a new access road.

Lynsey Breen, head of acquisitions at Advance Land Regeneration, said, “We are delighted to have gained planning for this development that will transform a neglected area into a thriving new community that will enhance and positively contribute to the local amenity and economy. The new development will feature quality family homes set against the backdrop of the Forth of Clyde and will have publicly accessible multi-functional open spaces for all to enjoy.”

AC Land Regeneration, a division of Advance Construction, specialises in the remediation and promotion of distressed brownfield sites.
