Miller seeks views on proposed development near Leverndale Hospital
Miller Homes is inviting the public, community groups and other stakeholders to view its proposals for a residential development and potential local neighbourhood centre facilities on land at Leverndale, Glasgow.
Located to the west of Leverndale Hospital and Raeswood Road, the proposal is for residential development plus land for potential local neighbourhood centre facilities including retail, business and food and drink uses, together with associated engineering, infrastructure, landscaping, and open space. The final scale of the development will be subject to the outcome of further analysis following public consultation. The indicative capacity for the site is around 300 new homes.
A consultation statement prepared by Geddes Consulting said: “Development of the site presents an opportunity to provide a better edge between the settlement and the surrounding countryside. At present much of the settlement edge in this location is weak, presenting a poor interface with the countryside. The development presents the opportunity to rectify this by creating a new clear Green Belt boundary defined by features such as White Cart Water.
“Development of the site does not compromise this objective of the Green Belt as separation between Glasgow and Paisley would remain. Release of this site from the Green Belt will help the council to achieve its effective housing land supply target.”
Following feedback from the online consultation, Miller intends to submit an application for planning permission in principle in late 2022.
