Housing scheme scaled back following consultation
Europark will be built around a country park
Proposals for a sprawling new housing and leisure development off the M8 have been scaled down following local feedback.
Orchard Brae, the developer behind the plan for EuroPark in North Lanarkshire, has removed all the planned development to the north of Calderbank which reduces the number of homes by 250 to 2,350.
Located on the M8 corridor adjacent to the Eurocentral and Maxim business hubs, EuroPark is seen as an opportunity to fully unlock the economic potential within the Maxim / Eurocentral growth corridor.
The proposal includes a mix of private, affordable and social housing as well as a school.
The centrepiece is a new country and heritage park, focused on the Monkland Canal and Calder Water. With the removal of the Calderbank development, the parkland area has been increased and now spans 66% of the overall site (162.4 hectares).
