Developer Orchard Brae has submitted a Proposal of Application Notice to North Lanarkshire Council for a new development on greenbelt land off the M8 at Eurocentral.

Named EuroPark, the project will include 3,000 new homes as well as a hotel and business premises, a new school, health club and cinema.

Orchard Brae director Scott Gillespie said: “Our hope is to achieve an outward-looking, nationally important development that interacts, informs and enhances its environment, breathing new life into underused green space while actively improving the canal network for the benefit of all.”

A planning application is expected to be submitted later this year.
