New town centre retail plans submitted for Cambuslang

More than 1,200 houses have already been completed at the site

Crucible Developments has submitted plans for a new town centre retail development at Newton Farm in Cambuslang.

Newton Farm forms part of the multi-million-pound development in Newton Village, to build over 2,000 new homes, two new primary schools, a park and ride hub, plus a new purpose-built neighbourhood retail centre. This new district lies immediately adjacent to the established residential districts of Westburn and Drumsgard.

More than 1,200 houses have already been completed with further phases due for release shortly.

The retail proposals include 15 retail units totalling 22,000 sq ft and will be anchored by a supermarket and a gym. Pre-lets have already been secured for the supermarket and four of the smaller units for uses including a coffee shop, a barbers, a pharmacy and a beauty salon.

Crucible Developments said the retail parade will be built to a high-quality, modern specification and benefit from 130 dedicated car parking spaces along with motorcycle and cycle parking facilities. Electric vehicle charging points are also proposed. There will be a wide pedestrian avenue to the front of the units and high-quality landscaping will finish the development off.

Caroline Proctor, land & planning director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, which has been involved in the delivery of homes at the site, said: “We are pleased to see this application being made for what will form a key milestone in the delivery of the Newton Farm masterplan. We are confident that current and future homeowners at Newton Farm will welcome the proposed addition of the retail area which will allow them to enjoy the convenience of a range of services on their doorstep.”

Michael Smart of Crucible Developments added: “We are delighted to be working with Taylor Wimpey to bring forward these exciting proposals for Newton’s retail centre. We have had encouraging levels of interest in the development from a number of occupiers and believe the remainder of the units will secure pre-let interest in early course.”
