MORE than 120 homes will be built at a former hospital site in Moodiesburn after a major developer has secured land.

Following confirmation of its planning consent for the 121 new homes earlier this year, Taylor Wimpey West Scotland has confirmed that it has now acquired land to deliver the development.

It forms a key part of the wider development of the former Stoneyetts Hospital site, where detailed planning consent for the development master plan is already in place.

Located off Gartferry Road, Stoneyetts View will provide 121 two, three and four-bedroom homes. These will be a mix of terraced, semi-detached and detached. 

New roads will be built. Meanwhile, the existing woodland will be retained and enhanced with new woodland paths to link to the countryside footpath network adjacent to the site.

As part of an existing agreement with North Lanarkshire Council, the development will also provide financial contributions towards affordable housing, off-site play provision and education.

Caroline Proctor, land and planning director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said: “We are pleased to have acquired the land required for our Stoneyetts View development.

“Stoneyetts View represents a significant and continued investment in North Lanarkshire.

"As well playing our part in the delivery of new homes within the master plan, our development will provide a range of economic benefits for the local area, which includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses.

“We look forward to working with the local authority and our developer partner to secure the technical consents that are now required to allow our range of new homes to be built as part of the overall vision for this site.”
