HOUSES Planned For Old Drumchapel School Site

A HOUSING development is being proposed for the site of a former school in Drumchapel.

Cruden Estates want to build 48 properties on land at Katewell Avenue, where Cleddans Primary School was located.

There would be a mixture of two and three bedroom semi-detached and terraced houses.

A planning application has been lodged with Glasgow City Council and is pending assessment by planners.

A design document submitted by Hypostyle Architects on behalf of Cruden states: “The proposal is for residential development on a brownfield site that will provide a viable and marketable development in Drumchapel.

“The approach to development will be sympathetic to the local area in terms of density, scale and massing; being consistent with local planning policy to create a development that contributes to the local environmental quality.

“The houses will be built to the highest standards of construction and energy efficiency using high quality materials.

“They will provide an attractive addition to the existing market for good quality family housing in Drumchapel. All dwellings proposed for the site will be provided with level access to the houses and gardens. All houses will have private gardens.”
