Planning permission for 89 new homes earmarked for the site of the former Braidfield High in Drumry was given the green light by West Dunbartonshire Council’s recent planning committee.

The development is set to include a mixture of terraced, semi-detached and detached three-and four-bedroom homes, with a total of 32 three-bedroom properties and 57 four-bedroom properties.

The 3.1 hectare site off Queen Mary Avenue had been earmarked for redevelopment for a decade since the school was closed in 2006 to become the new Clydebank High.

Last month, councillors swiftly agreed the development bid by Miller Homes.

Part of the plan also outlines an open space to be created within an area currently protected by a tree preservation order, which would then be used to provide a children’s play area.

However, a separate written planning application will need to be submitted to the planning authority with full details of this element of the development.

During the consultation period just one objection had been submitted, with a neighbour putting forward concerns regarding some properties overshadowing and overlooking an existing property on Queen Mary Avenue.
