PLANS have been revealed for another 170 new homes to be built in Bishopton.

Bellway Homes Ltd has acquired 14.9 acres of land in Dargavel, close to the new primary school.

It plans to build a total of 172 new homes. This includes two-bedroom apartments, three, four and five-bedroom semi and detached homes.

The first properties are likely to be released for reservation early in the New Year.

It follows on from the success of the developers previous 177 homes in the village.

Fraser Conn, regional director, Bellway Homes Ltd (Scotland West), said: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to build more homes in Dargavel Village, which has been hugely popular with buyers.

“We were one of the first builders to commit to the development and we are so pleased that our faith has been more than justified.

“Since we started building there in 2018 the whole area has been transformed from abandoned land into a vibrant community, with shops, a new school and fantastic transport links.

“Building communities rather than just homes has always been key to everything we do, and we are so proud of what has been achieved in Dargavel.”

The new development will form part of the larger regeneration of BAE Systems’ old Royal Ordinance Factory, which will see up to 4,000 new homes in total being built.
