PROPOSALS to build more than 50 homes on a field on the outskirts of Johnstone have been submitted to Renfrewshire Council.

Turnberry Homes Ltd is seeking permission to erect the houses on land between Corseford Avenue and Fordbank Equestrian Centre.

The proposals include 15 four-bedroom detached homes and a variety of three-bedroom properties, including four mid-terrace, four end-terrace and 30 semi-detached homes.

Supporting documents submitted with the application state: “It is understood that the proposed development plan for the site consists of 53 residential units, together with associated access roads, as well as resident and visitor parking, drainage and infrastructure.

“The area of the site is approximately 2.45 hectares. The site is bound by local residential properties to the south and to the west by Corseford Avenue. The east of the site is bound by existing agricultural land and to the north by the Glasgow and South Western Railway line.”

If approved, all of the accommodation will be two-storey and each property will have access to its own private garden.

The application shows a total of 128 parking spaces will be put in place as part of the development.

This includes 105 spaces attached to homes, 16 in a “parking court” and seven for visitors.

According to the development plan, there would be one main access road into the estate from Corseford Avenue, as well as a footpath link connecting the development to an existing road between the site and houses to its south.

A sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) pond would also be installed on the land and a landscaped buffer hedge would be placed in between the estate and existing railway tracks.

Areas of “communal soft landscaping” would also feature.

Renfrewshire Council is due to make a decision on the application later this year.
