Green light for more than 300 homes in Raploch
Members of Stirling Council’s planning and regulations panel backed plans by Robertson Group to build homes on land owned by the council.
Planning permission in principle was granted in January this year, and last week councillors agreed details of the 319 homes to be built across the four locations.
The proposals include:
- 75 affordable homes at Back O’Hill Road where formerly there had been council housing (Gowanhill Gardens).
- 211 homes (a mix of 75 private and 136 affordable housing) at a site that was previously a primary school and playground.
- 16 affordable homes at Drip Road between Kildean Hospital and Balfour Street.
- 17 affordable homes, on a site which fronts Drip Road.
The proposals were approved subject to a number of conditions laid out in the planning report submitted to the Panel.
Convenor of the planning and regulations panel, Alasdair Macpherson, said: “One of our key priorities is to build more affordable homes across the Stirling Council area and these developments will result in an increased supply of good quality, energy efficient housing.
“I look forward to seeing this project getting underway and for new tenants to be able to access these new properties in the future.”
