New homes in Uddingston have been a scarce commodity over the past few years, with a series of new housing developments rapidly selling out. Yet a combination of circumstances has recently resulted in an unusually diverse choice of new homes in Uddingston being available to househunters.
Having been reserved since August 2018, a final property has come back onto the market within Springfield’s eponymous development in Uddingston Village. This development is otherwise complete, with site works finished over a year ago, making this a unique chance to secure a brand-new three-bedroom semi-villa less than half a mile from Uddingston’s Main Street.
New homes in Uddingston have been centred on Tannochside in recent decades, and the ready availability of brownfield land is being exploited by Taylor Wimpey. Their Tannochside Gardens development is a substantial collection of 140 two, three and four bedroom properties. A number of plots remain available towards the rear of this estate, arranged along two interconnecting figure-of-eight crescents.
Tannochside Gardens’ location just off Old Edinburgh Road places it within close proximity of Cruden Homes’ 64-property Laburnum Lea development, at the opposite corner of Viewpark. Cruden are constructing a blend of two and three-bedroom terraced, semi and detached villas, bringing new homes in Uddingston to a long-established district bordered on two sides by Laburnum Road.
While these developments represent the only active opportunities to secure new homes in Uddingston, residential masterplans on either side of the M74 motorway are being considered by Uddingston’s two local authorities. At the time of writing, South Lanarkshire Council are considering a planning application by Barratt Homes to construct 21 three-bedroom terraced and semi-detached villas on a strip of land beside their sold-out Moray View development. This site enjoys a favourable position on Uddingston’s southern edge, just around the corner from Springfield’s development and backing onto an M&S Simply Food-anchored retail park. The rapid sell-out of Moray View’s main phase reflects enduring levels of demand for new homes in Uddingston Village, particularly for three-bedroom properties.
Deliberations are also ongoing across the M74 at North Lanarkshire Council, after councillors recommended repurposing a brownfield site beside the West Coast Main Line train route between Glasgow and London. A series of masterplans has been drawn up showing a collection of 93 villas, a series of 244 apartments, or a blend of both property styles. A decision on North Lanarkshire Council’s preferred masterplan is due later this year, and on-site excavations could start before Christmas. This might become one of the most significant collections of new homes in Uddingston for many years, and news on its progress will be carried right here on Living in Uddingston.
