Planned health centre to leverage 180 new Bargeddie homes
Barratt and David Wilson Homes have tabled indicative plans to construct a community health centre within Bargeddie, North Lanarkshire, as part of a bid to win permission in principle to build up to 180 homes on 10ha of green belt designated grassland.

Designed by Halliday Fraser Munro as part of the practice’s master plan for the area the scheme would include a mix of terraced, semi-detached and detached properties together with shared surfaces built to Designing Streets standards.

In a statement Keppie Planning said: “The applicant has investigated the acquisition of additional land within Bargeddie, with a view to providing a healthcare facility within the village.

“The applicant has confirmed a significant interest from one of its trusted, third party, health care provider partners, and if the Council are minded to do so, the applicant and their partners would be happy to enter into discussions regarding the provision of a healthcare facility.

“This could be provided as a direct community benefit from the development, secured through an appropriate legal agreement.”

The planned estate would border Drumpellier Country Park.
Keppie attest that the hemmed in site offers 'little or no' function as green belt

If this proposal is accepted in principle will someone have the bottle to say that glorified 'portakabin' architecture is not acceptable?

I'm pleased for any regeneration to Bargeddie. I feel location wise it is an ideal place to live- by the motorway, a train station and near the city and the towns of Lanarkshire, but the original post war Bargeddie is awful!! Perhaps now Bargeddie as a new community can thrive and develop for the future!

And maybe one day I'll consider living there!

Ross,
Can greenbelt development be classed as 'RE'generation?

Is that not Malcolm Frasers new office? Thought he would be against such a development being the design wizard?

It is always a tell tale sign when the images are all about the plants and not the architecture.

Who are this HFM group. Never heard of them. Hope they are not putting this in my back door.
