A planning application has been lodged with East Dunbartonshire Council to construct a new community of 256 homes at Fauldhead, near Bishopbriggs.

The proposals from Cala Homes include 67 affordable homes and a diverse range of house types. These range from compact terraced homes suitable for later living, to larger semi-detached and detached villas for growing families, with views of the Campsie Fells to the north of Glasgow.

Cala said significant effort has been placed on incorporating green space at the site, which is close to the Luggie Water burn. Many of the existing landscape features including trees and a natural pond will be retained to support the site’s wildlife, while a new play area will be created to provide a recreational facility for families.

Located just over 11 miles from Glasgow and within walking distance of Lenzie train station, the site is described as "ideally located" for commuting.

Fraser Dick, development manager at Cala Homes (West), said: “A key highlight of the plans is the retention of the landscape features of the site, securing valuable green space and maximising visual interest. We look forward to working with the local community to deliver our plans.”
