More than 300 new homes are set to begin construction in Bishopton later this year.

Persimmon West Scotland announced that the development will offer a wide variety of new energy-efficient homes, ranging from two to five bedrooms.

It includes 35 of the new homes being built under the company’s prestigious Charles Church banner, offering a range of larger luxury properties.

The works are set to begin early this year with 309 homes in total being built.

In addition, 23 of the new high-quality homes will be transferred to a local housing association to help local people in housing need.

The new development in Dargavel Village will form part of the larger regeneration of BAE Systems’ old Royal Ordinance Factory.

When complete, Dargavel Village will comprise new housing, commercial and community buildings, a woodland park and recreational facilities.

It is named after Dargavel House, a Grade B-listed tower house building situated within the grounds of the BAE Systems’ site, which has parts which date back to 1514.

Craig Moore, Persimmon West Scotland land director, said: “Dargavel Village is an award-winning development which has grown to become one of the premier destinations for family housing in the west of Scotland.

“We’re delighted to begin construction on this next phase of the development, and to play our part in the ongoing transformation of the site into a vibrant and sustainable new community.”
