Located at Lenzie Road, the firm says the 2.3 hectare site will be transformed to offer new homes that meet the needs of the current market and that the development will also include 21 affordable homes.

The proposed £15 million investment marks Persimmon Homes’ most recent in Kirkintilloch following the Woodilee Village development in 2015.

Doug Law, Managing Director of Persimmon Homes West Scotland, said: “Our commitment to investing and creating new homes in East Dunbartonshire remains strong.

“The development will not only rejuvenate the area delivering high quality new homes it will also create revenue and jobs in the town.”

He said the site benefits from its prime location in the centre of Kirkintilloch close to Woodhead Park, Kirkintilloch Leisure Centre and the college campus, making it ideal for a wide range of buyers.

According to the developers, subject to planning approval work on site could potentially start in early 2020.
