Second phase of North Lanarkshire development to go on public display
Plans for a mixed-use development that will include around 600 residential new homes and a small neighbourhood retail centre in Holytown, North Lanarkshire are to go on show at a public consultation event early next month.
Murray Estates Ltd has lodged a Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) with North Lanarkshire Council for the second phase of its Torrance Park development and will share the plans with the local community on May 9 from 12noon-8pm at Torrance Park Golf Clubhouse.
The community is encouraged to take this opportunity to visit the event to view the plans as Murray Estates and its build partners – Barratt Homes West Scotland, Miller Homes Ltd and Taylor Wimpey West Scotland – develop their proposals for this phase of the development.
The new proposals, which also includes associated infrastructure, landscaping and open spaces, follow the ongoing phase 1 which has delivered 270 residential homes and a new golf clubhouse at the Torrance Park golf course.
Phase two at Torrance Park has been allocated in the North Lanarkshire Development Plan.
Russell Wilkie, director of Murray Estates, said: “Registering our Proposal of Application Notice and hosting a public exhibition for our Phase 2 proposals at Torrance Park in Holytown, marks a significant milestone in our journey to deliver our master plan vision to create a vibrant mixed-use development in the heart of North Lanarkshire.
“The inclusion of Phase 2 in the North Lanarkshire Development Plan is great news for us as it allows us to maintain the momentum that we’ve generated around this project.
“The public exhibition of our plans will allow the local community to see our build partners’ proposed designs so it’s a very exciting time for the project when we know that it has already made a positive contribution to the existing local community of Holytown by creating an attractive and desirable place to live.
“We anticipate that construction of phase two will begin in Spring/Summer 2018, subject to all necessary approvals being in place.”
