2013-03-11 16:54:11 - Ryden has been instructed by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board to market a prime site in the affluent area of Lenzie.
The site was formerly Lenzie Hospital, now demolished, and provides an exciting opportunity to create a specific development for a care home and a range of residential units for older residents.
The 6.24 acre site is situated on the southern fringe of the town, opposite Lenzie Golf Course, in an area of high amenity value with many mature trees and bushes offering a very attractive setting.
Lenzie has an increasing, ageing population which is recognised by the Local Plan policy which supports the redevelopment of the site for the proposed use.
Russell Rutherford, partner at Ryden responsible for the site’s disposal, advises that there are a number of strong enquiries already registered, reflecting the site’s strong attributes, namely its very desirable location, excellent
rail and bus links and easy access and close proximity to the motorway system.
He added: “The concept of a care village is not new, but increasing demand by residents for a secure, social community within an attractive environment will result in many more of these villages being progressed, as downsizing and low maintenance becomes a higher priority for the older generation”.
