Plans for major new residential and retail development in East Kilbride LDRS

A planning application has been made for a major residential and retail development in East Kilbride.

The application will see the development of 1012 new homes as well as local retail and office space, an industrial aspect and a children’s nursery located at Langlands West near Auldhouse Road.

The retail, office space and children’s nursery is intended to serve as a facility for the new neighbourhood to serve the day-to-day convenience needs.

There will be walking and cycle-based accessibility to reduce car-borne trips which would otherwise go to Lindseyfield as the nearest local centre, with aims of the development contributing to a low carbon economy.

The site will have associated roads, car parking and landscaping incorporated to allow accessibility.

There will be three retail units, one office unit and the children’s nursery.

The development will be split into segments, with the community area located to the north of the site and surrounded by the homes.

The application was received by South Lanarkshire Council on September 28, 2021, and validated on April 2 this year.

Neighbourhood consultation for the development began on April 8 and will end on April 29 with standard consultation beginning on April 7 and ending on April 21.

The determination deadline for the application is August 6.
