1 Old Bellsdyke Road
Designed for local house builder, Ochilview Developments, this group of apartments and cottage flats are proposed to occupy a disused garage site. The massing of the apartments responds to Bellsdyke Road by providing a strong frontage, creating a new gateway into Larbert from the west. Within the site these taller apartment buildings step down to a scale more reflective of the residential context, sheltering softer landscaped areas and more intimate access to cottage flats. This provides a quiet and safe environment for the houses to be accessed from, allows the opportunity to meet neighbours and a place for children to play. Crossings and signage extend beyond the the site extents in order to knit into the existing pedestrian and cycling links to the Forth Valley Hospital network. The site will offer 26 apartments including a proportion of these allocated as affordable housing. Open plan living areas reduce corridors and hall space to maximise room sizes. Sales information for the properties available can be found on the Ochilview Developments website.
