Proposals to build a 121-home ‘environmental village’ have been given the go-ahead by planners in Scotland.
The Polnoon moorland scheme, permission for an earlier version of which was granted in 2006, was revised after developer Mactaggart & Mickel said they could make better use of street and housing design.
The environmentally friendly project will be built near Eaglesham Village, in East Renfrewshire.
Finance secretary John Swinney said: ‘The Polnoon project demonstrates what can be achieved in a residential development where the focus is on designing quality streets, public spaces and housing.
‘The project collaboration has applied Scottish Government planning advice and Mactaggart & Mickel’s award winning track record for good design to ensure an excellent sustainable design which enhances the environment for residents.’
Construction will start within the next two years.
