West Scotland set to commence new development at Dargavel Village in Bishopton

31 January 2024

Persimmon West Scotland has announced plans for the construction of 309 new homes at Dargavel Village, with construction to begin early this year.

In addition, 23 of the new high-quality homes will be transferred to a local housing association to help local people in housing need.

Persimmon West Scotland completed the purchase of the site at the end of 2023, with construction work scheduled to begin early this year.

The new development in Dargavel Village will form part of the larger regeneration of BAE Systems’ old Royal Ordinance Factory.

When complete, Dargavel Village will comprise new housing, commercial and community buildings, a woodland park and recreational facilities. It is named after Dargavel House, a Grade B listed tower house building situated within the grounds of the BAE Systems’ site, which has parts which date back to 1514.

Persimmon West Scotland Land Director Craig Moore said “Dargavel Village is an award-winning development which has grown to become one of the premier destinations for family housing in the west of Scotland.

“We’re delighted to begin construction on this next phase of the development, and to play our part in the ongoing transformation of the site into a vibrant and sustainable new community.”
