The country’s leading housebuilder has revealed a £20 million plan to build much needed new homes in the Glasgow suburb of Darnley after successfully finalising a land deal this week.

Persimmon Homes West Scotland says it wants to build 140 new homes at the 12.35 acre site located on Leggaston Avenue just half a mile outside Glasgow City Centre.

The anticipated investment from Persimmon of £20 million also includes a Section 75 investment of £274,000.

Work on-site is underway to transform the site that has lain vacant for over 40 years. Persimmon’s investment in Darnley is testament to the popularity of the housebuilders’ previous Glenmill development.

Final detailed planning for the new development that will be named Sycamore Park was granted by Glasgow City Council on 20th June 2018.

Doug Law, managing director of Persimmon Homes West Scotland, said: “This is an exciting development for Darnley and marks the continuation of our investment in and around Glasgow. The site will not only provide much needed new homes close to the city it will also breathe economic life into the area creating jobs and further investment.

“Our plans include homes two-bedroom flats through to five-bedroom houses ideal for a range of buyers, from those looking to get on the property ladder for the first time to families seeking more space as they grow.”

Sycamore Park is situated on the southern edge of the city with access to Darnley Country Park on the doorstep coupled with two train stations within walking distance and easy access to motorway links.
