Plans for a major new retail park in East Renfrewshire have been approved by the council.
A £15m investment by London & Scottish Developments will transform the former site of the Nestlé Purina factory, on Glasgow Road, Barrhead, which has been laying derelict for 15 years.
The project aims to create hundreds of jobs for the area.
The development will include a Lidl, a B&M and two drive-through restaurants, one of which will be a Burger King, as well as a number of smaller retail units.
The retail park is set to open at the end of 2021.
Councillor Tony Buchanan, Leader of East Renfrewshire Council, said: “This is fantastic for Barrhead – it will bring significant new jobs and extend the range of retail on offer within the town.
“Thanks to Glasgow City Region City Deal funding we have been able to prepare the land for development and look forward to seeing it transformed into a thriving shopping location.”
Andy Richardson Development Director at London & Scottish, added: “We are delighted to have secured planning consent for this major investment, which will create between 190 and 210 retail jobs as well as numerous construction roles.”
