42 new homes proposed for Gartcosh

Scottish housebuilder Springfield Properties has submitted a detailed planning application for a new 42-home development in Gartcosh.

The developer submitted plans to North Lanarkshire Council to transform the 1.98-hectare site, which neighbours Mount Ellen Golf Club, into a new crescent development.

The development will deliver a mix of three and four-bedroom homes from the Springfield Alba range. The homes will be fitted with electric car charging cables as part of the company’s recent pledge to future proof its homes.

Springfield chief executive, Innes Smith, said: “This new development is in a great location. There are handy commuter routes a stone’s throw away, it’s nearby the Glasgow Fort Shopping Centre and right next door to Mount Ellen Golf Course.

“The development will introduce new jobs to Gartcosh while supporting local businesses and suppliers. And with plenty of open space throughout the development, bordered with existing woodland, we are confident our plans will be a positive addition to the area.”
