Kirkintilloch Business Gateway Masterplan public consultation Nov-Dec 2021

KIRKINTILLOCH BUSINESS GATEWAY MASTERPLAN CONSULTATION

What is this about?

‘Kirkintilloch Business Gateway’ refers to the area between the A806 Initiative Road and approximately Woodilee Road. It currently contains a mixture of existing businesses (including P W Hall and other companies) and vacant/derelict sites. The area is allocated primarily for business and employment development in East Dunbartonshire Local Development Plan.

The Council wishes to support existing businesses and encourage the development of vacant and derelict land in the Kirkintilloch Business Gateway area to create jobs and employment. To help with this, a draft masterplan has been created for the area.

The purpose of this public consultation is to share the draft masterplan and seek the views of local residents, businesses and the public. After the consultation has closed, the Council will review the draft masterplan taking account of consultation responses, and then approve it as ‘planning guidance’ to help determine future planning applications.

What’s in the draft masterplan?

  • A more detailed introduction to the draft masterplan, what it aims to achieve, and how it was prepared.
  • Plans showing how the Business Gateway area should be developed in the future, including land uses, potential building layouts, landscaping and open space, and vehicular, pedestrian and cycling access routes.
  • An explanation of how the masterplan is expected to be delivered, including specific requirements for different parts of the area.
  • A summary of technical and engineering issues.
