Proposals for more than 2,300 new homes in Glasgow were unveiled this week in three separate major projects.

The largest is an ambitious scheme for four new ‘villages’ on the north-eastern edge of the city, which would provide about 1,500 homes.

Community consultations are under way over the proposals for land beside Easterhouse, which has been designated as part of a community growth area in the city development plan.  

It involves the 75-hectare Heatheryknowe site, south of Commonhead Road, with four distinct areas identified by Manor Architects as suitable for development.

The proposals also include a care home, open space and links to the adjacent Seven Lochs Wetland Park and Maryston Woods.

Separately, planning applications have been lodged by KR Developments for 424 new build-to-rent flats in four blocks at Partick in Glasgow’s West End, while Bellway Homes has submitted plans to build 403 homes at the site of the former Ruchill Hospital in north Glasgow.
