BLACK O’Hill roundabout is starting to look rather bare now after weeks of felling in the area.

Announcements came in on Twitter that the town’s Low Wood roundabout, adjacent to the B8048, was being felled over the past few weeks. 

The forest which is to the west of the Red Deer Inn, has been torn down over the past couple of weeks, with no clear indication of why the trees were being felled. 

 
 
Vico Properties, who own the land between the Red Deer Inn and the Low Wood forest say that they have heard nothing about the future of the land will be.

“Any felling being carried out at the Low Wood is being carried out by other parties and Vico have not been advised or made aware that this was going on,” a company spokesman told Cumbernauld Media.

The newly stripped land could be one of a number of potential sites for new homes, after one of Scotland’s largest development agencies announced intentions to build thousands of homes throughout Scotland.

Barratt Scotland have announced plans to build thousands of new homes across Scotland in the coming year, with Cumbernauld earmarked as a hopeful site, although no more information about the developer’s plans for Cumbernauld have been announced.
