Learn more about our new exciting new development in Glenboig.

We have secured planning permission from North Lanarkshire Council for the development of an exciting new community at the former Garnqueen Farm in Glenboig.

Our development will provide 535 new homes which will include a range of two, three and four bedroom homes - perfect for first-time buyers and growing families alike.

The development forms part of the Gartcosh and Glenboig Community Growth Area which proposes over 3,000 new homes and the provision of enhanced amenities which are connected by the Seven Lochs Wetland Park.

The development is planned to integrate with the extension of the nature reserve, provides footpath connections, a centralised area of open space and stone sculptures to represent the site’s agricultural history.  In addition to the Community Hub adjacent to the site, our proposals include other community benefits which will see contributions of around £4million go towards education, road upgrades and play facilities.

Masterplan

Our plans to create a thriving new community in the village of Glenboig were approved in September 2020 by North Lanarkshire Council. Our development will offer 535 new homes including two, three, and four bedroom homes in a variety of styles and sizes to appeal to a wide range of buyers and lifestyles.
The development is part of the Gartcosh and Glenboig Community Growth Area which proposes the development of over 3,000 new homes.  Our development will integrate with the extension of the Gartcosh Nature Reserve to the south of our development which will provide plenty of open space for the community to enjoy, along with a generous central park. New cycle and footpaths connections will connect to the existing railway path to the east and these connections form a key part of the wider Seven Lochs Wetland Park master plan. In addition to a new Community Hub adjacent to the site, our proposals include other community benefits which will see contributions of around £4million go towards education, road upgrades and play facilities.

Homes proposed

The development will offer an impressive range of two and three bedroom terrace and semi-detached homes, as well as four bedroom detached homes in a variety of styles and sizes to appeal to a wide range of customers.

The mix of homes which will be available includes the 2 bedroom Andrew home, 3 bedroom Baxter, Blair and Chalmers homes and 4 bedroom Douglas, Drummond, Fraser, Geddes 5 and Maxwell.

Street scenes

The appearance of our homes have been thoughtfully designed create to character and a sense of place.
Our homes have been designed with a mixture of white render and stone brickwork. The varied positioning of the homes provides enhanced character and an easy place to find your way around.

To create a community with character and to acknowledge the history of the development, bespoke sculptures will be displayed throughout the development and will be formed from the stone reclaimed from the proposed demolition of Garnqueen Farm Steading.

A generously central park is located at the heart of the development, which not only providing a centralised focal point in our design, but more importantly a provides the perfect place to meet other parents and your neighbours.  Enhanced landscaping around this area will serve to integrate the park with the green network. Homes located along the southern development boundary will benefit from views across the surrounding woodland.

About our proposals features

Economic benefits

We aim to deliver new homes and facilities that positively benefit the wider community.
In addition to the Community Hub adjacent to the site, the proposal includes several other benefits through an agreement with North Lanarkshire Council which will see contributions towards education, road upgrades and play facilities of around £4 million.

Open space

Ensuring our residents and the local community have access to beautiful green open space is a key consideration for us.

A strong emphasis on greenspaces has been considered. From small landscaped areas throughout the development, to larger green pockets, we have ensured that no street is left without a view of soft landscaping. 

The central open space, generous park and links to the wider Seven Lochs Wetland Park will provide plenty of open space for the community to enjoy.
