New accommodation block planned for Faslane

Plans have been lodged for a new accommodation block housing 156 naval personnel at Faslane.

The proposals by Carillion would see new cabin units in a stand-alone building matching the existing Neptune ‘propeller’ design units in height, design and colour.

Carillion say the new building will be positioned to avoid overlooking and face a ‘main street’ to strengthen the ‘village’ concept of the accommodation area at HM Naval Base Clyde.

The proposal is being treated as a major application by Argyll and Bute Council and details are available on its website by searching for the reference number 14/01781/PP
