Miller in bid to build 300 homes 
at Cardowan

An application for permission to build up to 300 homes at Craigendmuir in Cardowan has been submitted to North Lanarkshire Council.

The applicant is Miller Homes and the site, to the south of Dorlin Road,  is currently owned by the University of Strathclyde but would be sold if the planning permission was granted.

A spokesperson for Miller Homes said:“We can confirm we have submitted an application for Planning Permission in Principle to North Lanarkshire Council seeking approval for a residential development at Craigendmuir, Cardowan.

“The proposed development would feature a mix of starter and family homes 
to help meet local housing requirements and build upon Miller Homes’ 
strong track record in 
North Lanarkshire.

“The application follows two public information events last November where we received considerable interest and feedback from the local community which has informed the plans submitted and we remain committed to continuing positive engagement with the local community throughout the planning process.”

There has been a significant amount of controversy over these proposals and so far North Lanarkshire Council’s website lists 27 objections from members of the public, with many complaining the development would damage the Seven Lochs nature reserve while also overwhelming local schools and health services.

It is not yet known when councillors will consider the application.
