Barratt and Springfield deal to deliver new Scottish village

House builders Springfield Properties and Barratt Developments have entered into a partnership to accelerate the delivery of a new 3,042-home village at Durieshill, on the outskirts of Stirling.

Springfield is supplying the land, having driven the development through the design and planning process while Barratt will lead the provision of an ambitious infrastructure programme across the 600 acre site.

Initial groundworks are expected to start later this year creating over 200 new jobs.

The infrastructure programme will include significant upgrades to Roman Road, electrical supply works and sewage works.

Durieshill has already secured planning approval for over 3,000 private and affordable homes with a Gross Development Value of  £776m.

Innes Smith, CEO of Springfield Properties, said: “We are delighted to collaborate with Barratt on this exciting project at Durieshill. Our shared values and goals in constructing quality homes and fostering sustainable communities, combined with Barratt’s five-star reputation, will offer customers increased choice and accelerate delivery in this premier development.

“Durieshill is more than just housing – it’s a place where people will live and work. The development of the village will inject significant investment into the local economy, making a huge contribution to the area with employment and apprenticeship opportunities in the hundreds.”

Douglas McLeod, regional managing director for Barratt Developments Scotland, added: “The provision of quality homes in this underserved area will not only offer much needed choice to local home seekers, it will support local employment and create demand for new amenities and services too. This is why we are investing so significantly in crucial infrastructure to serve the area, as well as making provisions for schools, shops and community spaces.”
