Hamilton, ML3 8RN

Learn more about our new exciting new development in Hamilton.

We are working closely with South Lanarkshire Council and other key stakeholders to develop plans for an exciting new community in Hamilton.  Our development proposal offers 206 new homes on land off Meikle Earnock Road in Hamilton.

Our proposed development forms part of the wider masterplan for the Brackenhill Farm area and is part of the Hamilton Community Growth Area (CGA).

Enjoying a countryside location but with the convenience of the M74 motorway nearby, our development proposes to deliver a mix of two and three bedroom terrace and semi-detached homes, as well as four and five bedroom detached homes to appeal to a wide range of buyers and lifestyles. 

Planning Permission in Principle (PPP) has already been secured for this development, and our planning application sets out  detailed proposals for housing mix, landscaping and building materials.

Development Map

Masterplan

We want to create a thriving new community at Brackenhill Farm, Hamilton.  
When complete, the masterplan for the Brackenhill Farm area will create up to 2,000 new homes and it forms an important part of the Hamilton Community Growth Area.  Our proposed development represents an exciting chapter for South Lanarkshire and will provide much-needed new homes. 

Improved transport infrastructure will include an upgrade to Meikle Earnock Road, which will allow for the continuation of the new cycle and bus route. 

A new footpath network will provide pedestrian access to the existing woodland and open space, as well as links to the wider local area,  and there will be play areas provided within other parcels of the masterplan development for children to play and socialise.
 

Homes proposed

Our proposal includes a range of 206 new homes with a choice of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes.
Our development will provide an impressive range of terrace and semi-detached homes, as well as detached homes to appeal to a wide range of buyers and lifestyles. We will provide a choice of new homes from our Scottish and Caledonian house type ranges.  

Street scenes

The appearance of the new homes will be reflective of the local area and we’ll use a palette of materials ensuring the development is in keeping with existing houses nearby.
To create a characterful community, the proposed development will be designed to create a sense of place and maximises the latest Scottish Government Planning Policy for Designing Streets.  These designs give priority to pedestrians over vehicles through the use of shared surfaces and home zones to create natural areas of focus at key points of the development.

About our proposals features

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.
The proposed development will be accessed via Meikle Earnock Road,  which will be upgraded as part of our development works. The upgrade works will include extensions to the new cycle and bus routes to ensure there is improved connectivity to the wider local area. 

A new footpath network will  also mean greater pedestrian  access the surrounding open space, which naturally encourages better enjoyment of the outdoors.
 

Ecology

Preserving and enhancing the existing surroundings is a key consideration for us when planning a new development. 
The existing woodland adjacent to the development will be retained and managed as part of our work to create the development, ensuring the existing habitat is preserved.   We will also enhance the overall green space within the development by including new planting within and around the development. This aims to create a seamless link between the development and the existing open space which creates natural recreational spaces for family and friends to socialise.

Our approach features

Open space

Ensuring our residents and the local community have access to beautiful green open spaces is a key consideration.
To make the most of the outdoor space and the existing woodland, cycling and walking will be encouraged with a network of footpaths and cycleways which will provide easy access to the wider local area.
