Local residents to have a say on updated Cathcart site plans

CALA Homes (West) will host a second phase of community consultation events for its new Cathcart site on March 1 and 4.

Two sessions will provide the local community with an opportunity to review amendments made following feedback from previous sessions, ask questions, and view proposed plans and designs for the development. 

The sessions will be held on March 1 between 6pm and 8pm and March 4 between 10am and 2pm. Both will take place in the gym hall at Celeros Flow Technology’s office at 149 Newlands Road.

A formal planning application for around 275 apartments is expected to be submitted in spring this year. If successful, Cala will complete the purchase of the site, with the intention to start building by winter 2023.

Moray Stewart, land director at Cala Homes, said, “We have reviewed the feedback provided from local residents and community at our previous events and incorporated changes – where possible – to the design of the new Cathcart site. The two community consultation events due to take place in March will showcase our response and present a final design and layout scheme that we would be proposing to take to the planning committee.  

“I would encourage the local community to attend the events to learn about the changes incorporated, to meet the development team and to understand the vision for this brownfield site. We want to bring a collection of high-quality homes to an existing and established neighbourhood in Glasgow and as such we want to share our vision of the site to showcase to the community how the development will enhance and complement the area.”
