Joanne Casey, director at Mactaggart & Mickel, says: “We have long-established ties with the Newton Mearns area, having been building homes here since the 1930s. This particular site has attracted a high degree of local interest since work started, and we are delighted to have already secured reservations on most of the initial release of homes.
