The client brief clearly set out that the criteria contained in Scottish Government’s Planning Advice Notice: Designing Places should underpin the design concept to create a successful environment in which to live, work and play. The fulfilment of such criteria has assisted in creating a development that is:
• Safe and Pleasant
• Easy to access and move around
• Resource Efficient
This development incorporates a well-considered mix of terrace, semi-detached and detached two storey houses along with cottage flats containing ground floor wheelchair dwellings totalling 43 units.
The Housing Mix has been established in response to the current housing demand. This incorporates the following :

- 2 nr 2-Bedroom Cottage Flat
