Banknock & Haggs SIRR Development Framework


Falkirk Council / I&HBrown Ltd / JBBennet


Project Description

Preparation of a Development Framework for a SIRR (Special Initiative for Residential-led Regeneration) as allocated within the Falkirk Structure Plan. This encompasses two major brownfield sites to the north and to the southwest of Banknock village with some substantial physical constraints to be overcome. The sites were predominantly housing (estimated 700 units) and included a new village centre proposal to help integrate with the existing village and serve the expanded population. The framework was adopted as supplementary planning guidance in June 2009 and awarded a commendation in the 2009 Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning.
