HOUSEBUILDER Cala Homes (West) has submitted a planning application for the development of land in Cardross which, if approved, will deliver a variety of homes from one-bedroom cottage flats to five-bedroom properties.

The application, lodged with Argyll and Bute Council, proposes to build 130 homes at the site on the northern edge of Cardross between Darleith Road and Barrs Road.

Cala said the site will boast ‘extensive’ areas of high-quality landscaping and open spaces, including a village green and playpark.

As part of the work undertaken to develop the site and neighbouring area, the firm added that it will carry out a programme of road improvements and traffic calming.

Moray Stewart, land director, Cala Homes (West), said, “We have submitted a planning application to develop land that is allocated for housing in Cardross with a view to providing a range of homes, including 25% affordable housing to meet local demand. Cala has a strong connection with Cardross having built The Fairways in the village in 2005 and we are confident that this site will bring the same levels of enthusiasm from the local community.”

Cala Homes (West) will work with Dunbritton Housing Association to deliver the 30 affordable rented units on site.
