CALA's Proposal

The proposals represent a £30million investment in the long-term future of the region with the creation of 136 new homes, including apartments, as well as contributing to wider community benefits through a Section 75 Agreement with the Council.

The agreement will create 34 much-needed affordable homes, contributions towards local education amounting to £502,560, a £130,000 sports pitch contribution, and £41,500 towards A803 route corridor improvement plans.

Further, CALA will undertake an upgrade of the footpath, on the south bank of the Forth & Clyde Canal, and will install a new signalised junction at the Meadowburn/A803 junction.

The results of an independent economic impact study undertaken on behalf of the homebuilder indicate a significant positive impact for the local economy.

The development represents a capital investment of £30million from CALA which will support construction jobs over the duration of the three-year programme – thought to be worth around £2.1million to the regional economy – along with the creation of a further 23 indirect and induced jobs. 

Original site layouts have been adjusted to retain more green space than was initially proposed, bolstered further by more tree planting to enhance on-site biodiversity and boost natural habitat, making the site more ecologically sustainable for future generations.

CALA’s proposals, when complete, will deliver around five acres of usable open space within the site, including play space, swathes of formal and informal green space, and urban drainage features designed to allow local wildlife to thrive. 

A network of footpaths and cycleways throughout the development will further increase local leisure provision and connectivity, whilst landscape buffers will be created along the southern boundary, providing privacy for existing residents.

It is hoped that the development – ranging from one-bedroom apartments through to five-bedroom family homes – will encourage families, first-time buyers, downsizers, and young professionals to lay down roots in Bishopbriggs, creating a sustainable community.
