Plans for derelict eyesore site given the go-ahead

editorial image

A former oil depot in Bishopbriggs will be transformed after ambitious plans were approved.

Westerhill Developments will build a hotel, offices, healthcare facilities and a depot on land in Westerhill Road, Bishopbriggs.

East Dunbartonshire Council’s planning board visited the site before making an decision on the application earlier this week.

A park and ride facility as well as cycle lanes along Westerhill Road will be created as part of a legal agreement.

A cinema has also been mentioned as part of the plans and it’s the applicant’s intention to submit a separate application.

However, concern has been raised about the extra traffic the development would bring.
