Planning Application Submitted For New Gourock Housing

Titan Homes (Scotland) Ltd has applied for planning permission from Inverclyde Council to demolish the McPherson Centre in Gourock, a disused council property, and build 22 houses.

The semi-detached properties on land bounded by Tower Drive, Jacobs Drive and McPherson Drive would each have three bedrooms. 

A design document submitted with the application states:

“Ten properties are positioned to the front on to Tower Drive with the remaining 12 sited around the new access road [off McPherson Drive] with, adequate garden space included to the front and rear of each property and areas of open space provided within the overall development.”

The proposal is now pending consideration by council officials.

Bowman Rebecchi Director, Marco Rebecchi, whose Gourock-based Rebecchi Architectural Services are supporting the development, said:

“This promises to be a fantastic development that will further enhance the local housing stock and will secure some much-needed new housing for Gourock to meet the growing local demand.

The McPherson Centre is a former adult learning disability facility declared surplus by Inverclyde Council in 2018 and subsequently closed when services moved to the Fitzgerald Centre in Greenock. The site was sold to Titan Homes in April 2020.
