Former Newlands school set for residential transformation
February 17 2020
CCG Homes have filed a planning application to build 20 apartments on the site of the former Calderwood Primary School, Newlands.
Proposals call for the demolition of a 1960s extension to make way for a new build block on a reduced footprint, set behind retained stone boundary walls and gated access points.
The Victorian Calderwood Lodge would also be retained and converted under the plans with established trees preserved to ensure a green outlook for future residents.
CCG Homes managing director Calum Murray commented: “Working with architects Stallan Brand, Calderwood lodge presents an exciting opportunity to create something special with the conversion of the Victorian building and the new build construction of apartments which will be completed with a stunning stone facade.”
Tarmac playgrounds will be replaced by soft landscaping to the front and rear with provision made for private parking, a quarter of which will include electric charging points.
