Larbert council housing to serve as village gateway
November 30 2018
Falkirk Council are leading efforts to construct 24 new flats for social rent in Larbert on the site of the former Torwood Primary School.
Intended to serve as a southern ‘gateway’ into the village the estate will sit behind a retained natural stone boundary wall beyond which will sit four blocks of terraced accommodation.
The courtyard style development will front onto shared access streets with facades finished in a mix of Anstone blockwork with complementary cladding used to accentuate corners and areas ov visual interest.
In a statement the council wrote: “Although the scheme is designed to focus on the internal streets, the properties along the Stirling Road have been carefully designed to have an appearance of dual frontage. These properties have lower boundary treatments using high quality Anstone walling approx. 1.5m high and have the same rear doors as the main entrance doors.”
Active frontages will be provided to all blocks and end gables.
