Camouflaged terraces could rise on the banks of Loch Long
July 22 2019
Proposals have been prepared for the construction of 24 double-storey hillside terraced houses and a further 12 three-storey lochside terraced homes as part of efforts to create a new commercial landing area and public car park at Portincaple, near Helensburgh.
Indicative designs contained within a screening opinion prepared by puregreenspace indicate a mix of terraces stepping up 2 hectares of steeply sloping hillside from the eastern shore of Loch Long, employing green walls and roofs helping to mitigate their impact.
Arranged over two phases the masterplan also calls for 22 hotel rooms behind the beach slipway with properties ranging in size from four bedrooms arranged over 120sq/m up to six bedrooms across 180sq/m.
Occupying a prized spot overlooking loch the homes would sit on the fringe of Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park part of the site has been designated as ancient woodland.
