Suburban expansion pushes Moodiesburn north
November 18 2020
Bellway and George Buchanan Architects have come forward with plans for 115 homes at Gartferry Road to the north of Moodiesburn.
Located nine miles east of Glasgow the greenfield development will tie-in to an under-construction Persimmon development and centres on the Auchengeich Mining Memorial.
Screened by an established tree belt the estate will be zoned into a series of smaller 'mini neighbourhoods' with density increased toward a single point of access. Established planting and trees will be retained where possible.
Outlining their approach the architects wrote: "A key driver behind the development is the establishment of a vibrant new residential area to the North of Moodiesburn.
"Respecting the memorial, the layout of the development shall step back from the southern boundary, giving this area over to open space."
Included within the housing mix will be 12 tenure blind affordable homes which will be grouped for easy management.
