Engine room redevelopment to complete Stirling mill transformation
May 29 2020
Planning permission is being sought for the latest phase of development at a former mill complex in Cambussbaron, Stirling, with an application to build eight new homes.
Bracewell Stirling Architects propose to remove the remains of a former engine house (block E) within the A-listed Hayford Mills complex after its remains were deemed to be at high risk of structural failure.
Working with Swilken Estates it is now proposed to create a new build structure within the same footprint and conforming to the mass and scale of the historic structure.
Requesting demolition consent the applicant wrote: "Being of relatively poor build quality and having deteriorated to the point where the approved plans for retention and reuse are no longer practical, we would respectfully suggest that removal of the remaining structure is necessary and approval of a newbuild solution is the only viable option.
"We hope that this can be seen as an opportunity to approve the last piece of the jigsaw, thus ensuring completion of the Hayford Mills neighbourhood and leaving a lasting legacy which both respects the past and will ensure a successful future for the residents at Hayford Mills."
Work is already well underway to renovate and extend the historic mill complex into a new residential neighbourhood.
