CUMBERNAULD is among a list of a number of sites pinned on the map of one of Scotland’s biggest developers, for new build homes.

Barratt Scotland has said that they want to kick-start their plans to develop 17 new sites across the country, in the next year; building nearly 2500 new homes, in the process.

The development said that the move would help support employment in local areas – and nationally.

Douglas McLeod, regional director of the company, said: “We are optimistic about 2013. Our existing sites are selling well and these seventeen new sites are all in excellent locations and we expect the homes to be sold quickly by buyers keen to move to a new home this year.

Sites earmarked for future development include five areas around Edinburgh - Fairmilehead where 144 new homes are envisaged; Burdiehouse could have 112 homes built and Brunswick Road where 232 homes are planned. Another 140 homes will be constructed at Eskbank and 180 at Standhill Farm, Bathgate

Nearly 500 homes are planned on four new developments in Aberdeen at Den of Pitfodels, Evolution, Bridge of Don and Kings Court while at Inverurie, 600 new homes will be built.

However, other sites across the West of Scotland include Clydebank, Cumbernauld, Bellshill, Kilsyth, Coatbridge and Kilmarnock. 

No exact details on where exactly the homes will be built in Cumbernauld are available, although plans have previously been announced for close to 1,000 new homes on Abronhill’s Forest Road.

“Buyer confidence is steadily improving and we’re seeing encouraging demand for our homes. The fact that we are starting new sites is also good news for local jobs,” Mr McLeod added.
