Next phase of ‘Cherry Hill’ gets go ahead

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE - Shirley Bar­tynek

More than 45 new homes are set to be built in Larkhall.

Ap­pli­cant Lovell Part­ner­ship Lim­ited plan to build 49 houses with associated roads and in­fra­struc­ture on land north of Robert Sm­i­lie Pri­mary School.

The de­vel­op­ment would form phase 2 of the Lovell Homes res­i­den­tial pro­ject “Cherry Hill.” The pro­posed dwellings would in­clude 29 de­tached and 20 semide­tached houses with a mix­ture of three and four bed­room house types.

All homes would be two storeys height with a mod­ern de­sign.

Car park­ing pro­vi­sion would be pro­vided within the drive­ways of the in­di­vid­ual plots.

Twenty let­ters of ob­jec­tion were re­ceived by South La­nark­shire in Coun­cil in re­la­tion to the plans. Many had con­cerns about the amount of traf­fic which will be gen­er­ated by the de­vel­op­ment and will end up en­ter­ing the round-about off Mar­garet­vale Place.

Oth­ers raised some con­cerns over cur­rent traf­fic calm­ing mea­sures which, they say, are in­ad­e­quate and with in­creased traf­fic the sit­u­a­tion will not be eased. How­ever, of­fi­cials in their re­port to the plan­ning com­mit­tee this week stated: “The pro­posal has no ad­verse im­pact on res­i­den­tial or vis­ual amenity nor raises any en­vi­ron­men­tal or in­fra­struc­ture is­sues and com­plies with Poli­cies 1,2, 4, 5, 12, 14, 16 and 17 of the adopted South La­nark­shire Lo­cal De­vel­op­ment Plan.

Coun­cil­lors granted the ap­pli­ca­tion on Tues­day at the Plan­ning Com­mit­tee.
