A NEW plan for housing at the Seacroft site near Inverkip has been drawn up.
Nicholson McShane Architects of Greenock will be submitting the designs to Inverclyde Council for approval on behalf of developers Slam Transport.
Four ultra-modern eco houses are proposed for the site of the former Seacroft, on the A78 between Inverkip and Wemyss Bay.
The striking design features modern materials, a cantilevered first floor with an upper balcony and private external seating area and private parking and private gardens.
The dwellings have open plan living, dining and kitchen space, two bedrooms and infinity window features, to take advantage of the spectacular views across the Clyde.
Paul McShane, director of Nicholson McShane, said: “We are very excited and privileged to be involved in this bespoke development.
“It is a one-off opportunity to enhance this area of Inverkip. Improvements to the active travel route form part of the design with a focus on cycle and pedestrian paths.
“The site is also designed to provide new vistas, with improved views to the Clyde. We very much believe that this development is a positive enhancement by local residents and planners and that they recognise that it is a very positive turnaround for this site.”
Planning permission was given in 2020 for two homes at the site, which was previously occupied by a property that was at the centre of the Margaret Fleming murder investigation.
