A TOTAL of 62 new homes will be built in Clydebank town centre after councillors approved the plans from a developer.

A mix of three and four bedroom town houses and terraced properties will be built by Miller Homes.

The 1.43 hectares site earmarked for the development lies immediately to the south of Clydebank Business Park and south west of the Clyde Shopping Centre.

Part of the site used to house the former Clydebank Council office.

The development will utilise existing access roads directly off Kilbowie Road and Miller Street.

In planning documents, a resident of Miller Street highlighted their support for the proposed development, but also asked for some clarification.

The resident wanted to know if the roads layout and access between Kilbowie Road and Miller Street represented the final arrangement. But they outlined their support, given that plans do not compromise emergency and delivery vehicles accessing both Miller Street and the new site.

In West Dunbartonshire Council planning documents regarding the development, it states: “The redevelopment of this brownfield site for residential purposes would contribute towards the regeneration of the surrounding town centre area.”

It adds: “The layout of the site has been carefully considered whereby the houses have been orientated so they interact with Kilbowie Road, the canal and the adjacent existing houses on Miller Street.”

Some of the house design features include plinths and canopies, solar panels and Juliet balconies.

A total of 74 parking spaces will be predominantly formed in courtyard arrangements or rows nearby to the houses they serve.
