Approval sought for revised Ravenscraig masterplan
March 28 2018submitted their latest masterplan for the sprawling brownfield regeneration site.
Spurred by a commitment from North Lanarkshire Council to commit £190m towards a road building programme in the area next year the plans call for 550 homes, twin primary schools, a 17-acre park, community and commercial facilities to be delivered in phases through to 2021.
This follows on from a 2006 masterplan which largely stalled with the onset of the global financial crisis.
Des Murray, assistant chief executive for housing and enterprise at North Lanarkshire Council, commented: “The Council has always recognised the need to redevelop the site as part of our wider ambition for local communities and the area as a whole. Ravenscraig is not just a symbolic site for North Lanarkshire; it’s also of significant strategic importance. That’s why we have committed to the groundbreaking £190million pan-Lanarkshire Orbital roads investment which will make development at Ravenscraig easier.
A key part of the Cooper Cromar masterplan is the formation of a new ‘town centre’ that will include a convenience store and other shops next to a newly built 40-bed hotel.
