Hamilton home earmarked for 11 flat development
February 27 2019
DTA architects have tabled proposals to build 11 flats on the site of an existing detached home at Carlisle Road, Hamilton, part of a densification of land use for the South Lanarkshire town.
Superceding an earlier approval with a more contemporary design the latest proposals employ a palette of brick but has drawn criticism as an ‘overdevelopment’ of the suburban site.
One objector remarked: “The number of flats proposed is an overdevelopment of the site. The appearance of the proposed building as shown is not in keeping with the type of residential properties in the surrounding area. Particularly flat roofing and balconies.
“The number and proposed size of the balconies facing directly onto Carlisle Road look excessive and would detract from the surrounding area.”
Premier Inn is to build a new 96-bedroom hotel and restaurant further along the A72.
