Banks Development submit plans for extension to Clydesdale scheme

March 12 2008

Banks development has submitted proposals to North Lanarkshire Council for two new residential projects on the site adjacent to the former Clydesdale steel works near Motherwell.

Under the new plans, the Hamilton-based firm will build 74 homes on an eight acre site to the east of the Clydesdale site, with a further 16 homes and 24 apartments on a three acre area to the south.

The £110 million regeneration project of the former industrial works also includes a year-long remediation project to clean up and landscape the area as well as the construction of new roads in and around the area, and noise defenses to address the noise from the nearby Vallourec Mannesmann factory.

Andrew Liddell, regional manager at Banks, said: "There is a real need to provide more homes for an expanding population as we believe brownfield developments of this sort have a crucial part to play in meeting this need."
