Consultation on Proposed Sale of Land at Wateryetts Drive, Kilmacolm


Inverclyde Council is proposing to dispose of an area of land at Wateryetts Drive, Kilmacolm to MacTaggart & Mickel Homes Limited in connection with their proposed development of private housing on a larger site adjacent to the Land.

The Council is required to consult on this proposed disposal in terms of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1959 as the Land is a public open space and has published notice to this effect in local newspapers.

The Developer’s proposal is that part of the Land be used to form an access road to the Development, and that a community orchard (or similar) with relaxation space be formed on the remainder of the Land.

Planning permission in principle has been granted for the Development, in terms of which should the Development proceed:

  • 25% of the on-site accommodation will be affordable housing; and
  • there will be a developer contribution towards off-site works to improve the walking and cycling environment in Kilmacolm.


Details of the full development proposal in the planning permission can be found on the Council’s planning portal, reference number 20/0245/IC or by following the link shown in the Related links section of this page.
