Hundreds of jobs and new homes are in the pipeline after housebuilder Cala today announced new development sites in East Dunbartonshire.

Cala Homes (West), which forms part of the Edinburgh-headquartered building group, said the sites at Bishopbriggs, Lenzie and Kirkintilloch would deliver more than 440 direct construction jobs, as well as about 200 indirect employment opportunities to the local area during development.

The firm is investing close to £90 million into the trio of developments to construct 312 private and 105 affordable homes, helping to meet “elevated levels of demand” in the region.

Construction has recently commenced at a brownfield site near Jellyhill in Bishopbriggs, which is located close to established housing in the Meadowburn estate. The group is delivering 135 new homes, including 34 affordable properties, on the 19-acre site.

Construction is anticipated to commence at the other two developments, in Lenzie and Kirkintilloch, in the next few months, Cala added.

The company, which is well known for its upmarket designs, said it was bringing to market a “variable product range of new build housing that will satisfy demands from different buyer types”.
