MAJOR BROWNFIELD REGENERATION PROJECT; OUR INVOLVEMENT EXCEEDS 15 YEARS

Bishopton Community Growth Area

Our work on Scotland’s largest brownfield site started in 1999, requiring a suite of planning consents to enable phased development over a long build period.

The integration of remediation, bio-diversity, surface water drainage and development, with an approach to planning and masterplanning that extends well beyond land use, demonstrated that environmental and engineering constraints can be addressed through a holistic approach.

Key elements of the scheme are:

  • comprehensive regeneration masterplan for Scotland’s largest brownfield site (1,000ha) a former Royal Ordnance munitions site for over a century, resulting in widespread contamination.
  • cost effective regeneration: environmental, design, planning and community issues considered in parallel to arrive at a masterplan framework that will be sustainable for over 20 years.
  • mixed use scheme including 2,500 homes, 155,000 sq m of employment, retail, community buildings and green infrastructure.
  • integration of remediation, masterplanning and infrastructure to deliver self-sustaining development.

Engagement with the Bishopton community has included public exhibitions, workshops, newsletters, a dedicated website and community collaboration through a specially formed Community Liaison Group.
