Bellsmyre regeneration moves ahead with plans for a further 140 homes

Caledonia Housing Association has unveiled the next phase of their ongoing regeneration of the Bellsmyre district of Dumbarton which will see unpopular tenements replaced by 140 homes with gardens and parking.

A mix of semi-detached and terraced houses are proposed including cottage and wheelchair accessible flats set within open spaces and play areas connected by a network of paths and cycleways.

The £40m regeneration plan has now been put before West Dunbartonshire Council planners with most of the properties earmarked to existing tenants.

Dilveer Kaur Hoonjan from ECD Architects, said: "The Bellsmyre regeneration development provides a range of new homes with a design that takes inspiration from traditional Scottish architecture with the addition of modern detailing. Key gateways and corners of the site are celebrated by variation of materials, colour and additional design features. The buildings are positioned to fit the topography of the site, whilst taking advantage of the wonderful views of the Clyde and Kilpatrick Hills.

"A key priority in the design of the masterplan was to ensure ample public open space was provided, with pedestrian linkages to existing open spaces to enhance the green network in the Dumbarton area.”

Phase one work to deliver 66 homes on an adjacent brownfield site at Muir Road is still in progress, scheduled to complete by summer 2022.
