East Renfrewshire Council has given consent to Cala Homes (West) to create 346 new homes in Barrhead.

Designed to suit a wide range of owners, the new residential-led development will be constructed on land allocated for housing by the local authority adjacent to Balgraystone Road and Springfield Road.

Cala has already completed the purchase of the site, which will help meet demand for high-quality and sustainable housing. It will also complement ongoing regeneration initiatives locally, including work to upgrade and improve Aurs Road.

The new development will offer a diverse mix of housing types including terraced, semi-detached and detached homes, and range from two-bedroom starter homes to five-bedroom villas suitable for larger families.

The plans also include provision for a neighbourhood retail facility which would serve the residents of the development as well as the wider local community.

Public consultations carried out before the housebuilder submitted its plans to East Renfrewshire Council attracted more than 120 attendees. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with almost 7 in 10 supporting the proposals.

Gillian Hessett, land manager at Cala Homes (West), said: “We can’t wait to get underway with our plans for Barrhead and create wonderful new homes for the local community. The development has been designed to suit a wide range of homeowners from those taking their first steps on the property ladder through to growing families and downsizers and features ample green space and attractive landscaping.

“The site has been long intended for residential development and it is extremely rewarding that Cala has been selected as the developer of choice.

“We’re confident our proposals will enhance the local area, supporting demand for homes and sustaining the existing community. The construction phase of the development will also support the local economy through direct and indirect jobs.”

Groundworks are due to commence in Autumn 2024 with the first homes scheduled to be released for sale in spring 2025.
