Former Dumbarton convent to host 81 new homes
April 1 2022
West Dunbartonshire Council has awarded planning consent for 81 homes on the site of a former Dumbarton convent.
The five-hectare brownfield site off 74a Cardross Road was formerly occupied by St Michael's Primary School, since relocated down the road to the site of the old St Patrick's High School.
The land was also home to Notre Dame Convent, before its closure and is now home to the Carmelite Monastery. Delivered in partnership with Miller Homes the development has been master-planned by Barton Willmore with consultant engineers Dougall Baillie Associates around a new access road.
Lynsey Breen, head of acquisitions at Advance Land Regeneration said, “We are delighted to have gained planning for this development that will transform a neglected area into a thriving new community that will enhance and positively contribute to the local amenity and economy.
“The new development will feature quality family homes set against the backdrop of the Forth of Clyde and will have publicly accessible multi-functional open spaces for all to enjoy.”
The Carmelite sisters will remain in Craigend House as part of the new residential community.
