Proposed 2,500 home village near Stirling enters consultation phase
Springfield Properties has opened consultation on plans to build a new village at Durieshill near Stirling after lodging a Pre-Application Notice with Stirling Council.
Public consultation on the proposed 2,500 home new village will take place during October/November in the Stirling area, further details of which will be made available in the next few weeks.
The public consultation will help inform the application that will be submitted to the local authority next year.
The proposed plans for the new village to the south of Stirling will include 625 affordable houses along with extensive community amenities including a school, shops and landscaped open public spaces.
The homes will cater for a wide range of needs ranging from two bed apartments as well as two, three and four bed detached and semi-detached homes. Springfield Properties will take design inspiration from Stirling and the surrounding villages to achieve a traditional look and feel for the new Durieshill village.
Careful planning will be carried out to ensure no home will be far from green space and each home will be built to be highly energy efficient, meaning lower energy bills while reducing the household’s environmental impact. The new village will be one of the best-connected locations in Scotland with close transport links to Stirling, Glasgow, Edinburgh and the north.
Springfield Properties has the largest landholding of any private housebuilder in Scotland and recently received approval for a similar 3,000 home development at Bertha Park in Perth creating over 2,000 new jobs.
When approved, the Durieshill village will see the first homes being completed during 2019.
Springfield Properties chairman, Sandy Adam, said: “The economic benefits of a new village like Durieshill are significant and this is a fantastic opportunity to build a sustainable community for the Stirling area. The capital value of the development will generate major employment opportunities as well as providing high-quality homes for a range of budgets.
“We are experienced in delivering new villages like the one proposed for Durieshill and during the consultation period we will be listening carefully to local residents and businesses to help us develop our final plans.”
