Several village roads and pathways are to be closed to make way for a major regeneration project.

Not a single objection was made after East Dunbartonshire Council’s advertised the ‘stopping orders’ for roads in Twechar - meaning the closures have now been approved unopposed.

Diane Campbell, the council’s director of governance and regulation, said: “In order to facilitate the next phase of the Twechar Housing Regeneration Programme which will consist of 55 new homes for sale and rent, the council has agreed to confirm a Stopping Up Order which will see the closure of the existing road layout in Merryflats, Annieston, Burnbrae, Shirva Lee and Whitelaw Terrace.

“There were no objections by members of the public following the advertisement of the proposals to close the roads and associated paths. The closure will enable the development work to be carried out and a new road layout will be constructed as part of the new housing development.”
