Andrew Duncan, land director at CALA Homes (West), said: “This is an important and exciting milestone for the development as we look to deliver a significant transformation to this part of Killearn. We have been working closely with Stirling Council over the past few months to ensure that we could remediate the former hospital site to a high standard, and we are pleased to now be in a confident position to progress with the application.

“Generally, we have received positive feedback from the community on our proposals and we are hopeful that we will get the opportunity to continue our vision and deliver a development that will benefit the area, local businesses and importantly, the people who want to live here.”
