Hamilton-based property developer Banks Developments, which is carrying out the £110 million regeneration of the former industrial site, is now looking to develop around 11 further acres of ‘brownfield’ land in the New Stevenson area of Bellshill.
Under the new plans, 74 homes would be built on an eight-acre site to the east of the Clydesdale site, with a further 16 homes and 24 apartments constructed on a three acre site to the south.
Banks Developments regional manager Andrew Liddell said: “There is a real need to provide more homes for an expanding population, and we believe brownfield developments of this sort have a crucial role to play in meeting this need.”
The Clydesdale redevelopment is already the second largest regeneration scheme in the area, after Ravenscraig, and involves the remediation of contaminated land followed by the construction of more than 500 new homes.
A year-long remediation project to clean up the land is in progress, and infrastructure work, including landscaping, the provision of drainage works and the construction of a number of new roads in and around the area, will follow.
