Falkirk Wheel masterplan wins planning approval
April 27 2011
Tamfourhill to the east of Falkirk, comprises some 58 acres of canalside development land and is being developed by a partnership between Falkirk Council and British Waterways.
It will see a mile long corridor along the Forth and Clyde canal transformed into a new waterside quarter replete with homes, a hotel, marina, retail & leisure facilities and a public square around the B listed Union Inn.
These facilities would be split up into three distinctive urban “personalities”, a high density ‘hub’, medium density housing and low density housing and woodland.
The scheme is being designed by Michael Laird Architects.
