Over 300 new homes are to be built in a 'sought-after' area near Glasgow.

Cala Homes have announced they have been granted planning permission for 346 new homes in Barrhead.

The new residential-led development will be constructed on land allocated for housing by the local authority adjacent to Balgraystone Road and Springfield Road in the town.

The property developer has already completed the purchase of the site.

The new homes will also 'help meet demand for high-quality and sustainable housing' in the area.

The development will offer a diverse mix of housing types including terraced, semi-detached, and detached homes - ranging from two-bedroom starter homes to five-bedroom villas.

Cala Homes also says the plans include provision for a neighbourhood retail facility which would serve the residents of the development as well as the wider local community.

Gillian Hessett, Land Manager at Cala Homes (West), said: “We can’t wait to get underway with our plans for Barrhead and create wonderful new homes for the local community.

"The development has been designed to suit a wide range of homeowners from those taking their first steps on the property ladder through to growing families and downsizers and features ample green space and attractive landscaping.

“The site has been long intended for residential development and it is extremely rewarding that Cala has been selected as the developer of choice.

“We’re confident our proposals will enhance the local area, supporting demand for homes and sustaining the existing community.

"The construction phase of the development will also support the local economy through direct and indirect jobs.”  

Groundworks for the new homes are set to start in Autumn 2024, with the first properties to be released for sale in Spring 2025.
