Darnley Mains masterplan submitted for outline approval
October 29 2012
ADF Architects are masterplanning the £140m scheme for Meridian Developments and Valad Europe, who are proposing to build 300 homes, a 75 bed hotel, shops, nursery, restaurant and warehousing on the south side plot.
The new plan calls for a reduction in the number of hotel rooms from 135 and the allocation of less land for a proposed business park to allow more warehousing to be built, a reflection of current market demand.
City council senior planner, Ken Clark told the Evening Times: "Since 2006, economic conditions have deteriorated and the applicant has a new development.This application represents a significant potential investment in an area which has been earmarked for development for some time.
"Although we don't have any details from the applicant, this would be a major catalyst for job creation."
