Councillors Approve Homes Plan
South Lanarkshire councillors approve plans for homes at Uddingston former gas works site
Detailed plans for a total of 41 houses on former gas works land in Uddingston have been granted by councillors.
The two applications submitted by Barratt Homes West Scotland – one for 17 and the other for 24 homes – amend the site layout of previously approved matters.
South Lanarkshire planning chief Michael McGlynn pointed out to South Lanarkshire’s planning committee that the applications conformed to national and local plan
He explained: “The amended applications are required due to technical constraints on the site which alters the internal road layout of the development and reduces the development footprint of the existing consent to 63 [from 76] whilst continuing to satisfy the conditions of planning permission in principle.”
Mr McGlynn added that the development is considered to be of “a high quality design, incorporating a suitably high standard of material
and that it will be in keeping with the existing residential development in the surrounding area.”
Detailed planning permission was granted to Barratt West Scotland by the planning committee last month for the erection of 22 dwelling houses and associated works and landscaping on land located directly to the west of the site. Mr McGlynn also pointed out that in keeping with section 75 ‘planning gain’ requirements, Barratt Homes had agreed to provide a financial contribution towards the upgrading recreational provision in the area in lieu of providing the full range of play facilities in the site.
The sums involved are £14,200 for phase one, towards the upgrade of community facilities, and £10,000 for phase two.
