PLANNING Permission Given For Last Phase Of Housing At Old Hospital Site

6 April, 2021 | Planning

The final phase involves the southwest corner of the site

MUIR Homes has been given the go-ahead for its latest plan for the final stage of luxury housing development at former hospital grounds in Port Glasgow.

Seventeen homes will be built, a mix of two, three and four-bedroom properties, at the old Broadfield site.

Two previous planning applications had been agreed for the area of land involved — for 12 houses and then 16 homes.

Inverclyde officials have approved latest proposal, noting: “Over time, the size of the houses has decreased to reflect the contemporary housing market.”

Muir Homes say the development will include three large detached four-bedroom villas and one further detached property with three bedrooms.

There will also be 12 semi-detached three-bedroom homes and one two-bedroom terraced property, each with a private drive, allocated private parking space and an electric vehicle charging point.

This final phase is in the southwest corner of the estate which Muir Homes started redeveloping as Castlebank more than 15 years ago.

The site will include extensive planting and landscaping and will be enhanced by the retention of many existing mature trees.

Ash Sheikh, sales and marketing director for Muir Homes said: “We are pleased to secure planning permission for this development of luxury homes. We expect these homes to be very popular as they are spacious, beautifully designed and desirable, and offer modern living in an attractive setting.

“They are in idyllic surroundings but also in easy reach of Glasgow and local amenities.”
