20-year project approved

Village goes ahead amid call for ’rounded communities’

How it will look: the new Durieshill village

Springfield Properties has received consent to build a 3,042-home village at Durieshill, Stirling, over 20 years.

The project will create an entirely new community served by a range of amenities such as shops, a play park and a library, answering some of the concerns expressed in a recent survey on what home buyers want from new developments.

It is Springfield’s largest development to receive planning permission and management believes it is one of the largest developments to have been approved in Scotland.

Durieshill is less than a mile south of Stirling and covers an area of 593 acres.

With a gross development value of approximately £650 million, the village will have a mix of private, affordable and private rented homes. It will also include community facilities such as a primary school, secondary school and a 30-unit care facility for the elderly and commercial units.

Springfield expects to start work on site by late autumn 2020 with the first homeowners will moving in during calendar year 2022.
