CONSULTATION is taking place on proposals for the next stage of development at the  South Stirling Gateway site.

The proposals by Persimmon Homes could deliver 36 energy-efficient homes and the developer has already secured in-principle planning permission for part of Stirling Council’s South Stirling Gateway site, which is located between Bannockburn and the Pirnhall M9 junction.

The home builder is now consulting on new proposals for adjacent areas of land that would see 364 energy-efficient new homes built in the area, with 90 of those transferred to a housing association to help local people in housing need.

Around 50 people attended the first consultation event on the proposals at the Bannockburn Enterprise Hub and a further event is planned for Wednesday, June 21.

Taking place between 3.30pm and 7.30pm. The event will give local residents the opportunity to hear directly from the Persimmon team about their plans for the area and how the home builder’s investment can benefit the wider community.

As well as providing homes, the Gateway development will deliver a new primary school, additional funding for Bannockburn High School and local GP services – as well as a series of local road improvements.

Donald Gunn, land director for Persimmon East Scotland, said: “We’re pleased to be bringing forward the next phase of our plans for South Stirling Gateway and I want to thank local residents who have taken the time to engage with us so far.

“The South Stirling Gateway site provides a major opportunity to deliver new homes, jobs and investment for the area and we want to work with the local community to ensure our investment leaves a positive, lasting legacy across Stirling.

“With nearly half of our customers first-time buyers and the average price of our homes 16 per cent below the average price of a new build in Scotland, we’re proud to be opening the door to home ownership for more local families.”
