Hadden to build 39 new homes in Newtyle
Hadden Homes has obtained approval to build 39 new homes in Newtyle, marking the largest expansion of the village in decades.
The new homes will be constructed on the old glebe at the eastern entrance to the village. The location sits to the north of the Newtyle to Glamis road and beside the village playpark and core path.
Members of Angus Council unanimously approved the application earlier this week. However, the plans were subject to objections from local residents who said the new homes were not needed and would spoil the village.
A deciding factor in the approval was the site’s inclusion in the Angus local plan. The site was previously allocated for residential development by a Scottish Government reporter following local opposition.
A combination of detached and semidetached homes as well as four flats will be built under the plans, while ten of the homes will be affordable housing, the Courier reports.
Hadden Homes general manager Tommy Devlin said the firm would create a high-quality development. He said: “Hadden Homes have really listened to the advice from planning, parks and the others involved in this project. We’ve gone out of our way to make this a really special development.
“And we look forward to talking this through with the community.”
