Way clear for hous­ing plans

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

agree­ment has been reached with a hous­ing de­vel­oper set to build 244 homes in Cam­bus­lang for a fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion to im­prov­ing lo­cal fa­cil­i­ties.

per­sim­mons are propos­ing 232 de­tached, semi-de­tached and ter­raced units as well as a four-storey block of 12 flats on greenlees Road, across from Kirkhill golf Club.

Coun­cil­lors granted plan­ning per­mis­sion in Fe­bru­ary de­spite con­cerns from those liv­ing nearby about drainage and the sit­ing of a pro­posed recre­ational area.

the de­ci­sion was rub­ber­stamped by of­fi­cers last week.

pauline El­liott, south La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of plan­ning and eco­nomic devel­op­ment said: “although the plan­ning com­mit­tee ap­proved the grant­ing of con­di­tional plan­ning per­mis­sion ear­lier this year, con­sent could not be granted un­til the de­tails of a le­gal agree­ment with the ap­pli­cant were fi­nalised and the agree­ment signed.

“this agree­ment re­lates to a fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion from the de­vel­op­ers for the im­prove­ment/up­grad­ing of ed­u­ca­tional, com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties and af­ford­able hous­ing in the area and the cost of off-site drainage works.”

the plans also in­clude a new round­about and ac­cess road from greenlees Road.

plans are also in place for an area of open space and other,“in­for­mal”open spa­ces and foot­path links.
