Learn more about our plans for an exciting new community in Cowie.

Overlooking Berryhills Park, this development site was allocated for housing in Stirling Council's Local Development Plan which was adopted in September 2014. Our proposal aims to deliver 437 new homes as part of a masterplan vision for the area, including a mix of 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom private and affordable homes.

As well as new homes, our plans for the development include an ecology parkland and nature trail, community green spaces and an equipped play area.

Masterplan

The proposed development aims to deliver 437 new homes, offering a range of new homes from 2 bedroom apartments to 5 bedroom homes.
The masterplan incorporates formal public open spaces as well as a nature park which will provide natural habitats and community areas. There will be paths providing access for cyclists, wheelchairs and pushchairs throughout the open areas, between the Nature Park and Berryhills Park, as well as connections through to the existing village.

We look forward to positive discussions with the local authority in order to progress this development and bring a number of positive benefits to the local area.  We will keep the local community informed of our progress.

Homes proposed

The proposed development aims to deliver 437 two, three, four and five bedroom homes in a variety of styles and sizes to appeal to a wide range of customers.
The development proposes to offer a range of private and affordable homes. 50 homes will be affordable homes for social rent that will be transferred to Stirling Council. The scope of private new homes includes two, three and four bedroom homes, while the affordable properties will comprise a mix of 32 one and two bedroom cottage flats, as well as 18 two and three bedroom homes.

About our proposals

Connectivity

We understand that any new development will have an impact on the existing community and we have carefully considered this as we have developed our proposals.
To help integrate the new development within the existing community and create a sense of arrival, new access points on Bannockburn Road and Main Street are proposed as the main access routes into the development. New and existing routes will be formalised to provide safe and accessible connections between open spaces and the village that can be used for walking, cycling, wheelchairs and pushchairs. Furthermore, the road design will allow for buses to enter the development to minimise the reliance on cars.

Ecology

Preserving and enhancing the existing surroundings is a key consideration for us when planning a new development. 
We aim to complement the existing greenspace in Cowie with a new nature park along the western edge of the site. This will be planted to enhance its habitat value with wetland areas, native trees and shrubs including fruiting and flowering species, and meadow planting. The existing core pathway will be complemented by a further pedestrians path through the park.
