Notes to editor:

  • Dargavel Village, Bishopton earned one young Bishopton resident, Emma Brown, (aged eight), a place in local history earlier this year after she won a competition hosted by BAE Systems to name the development. Her entry, ‘Dargavel Village’, was selected by the panel of judges as the most suitable name for the development. Emma chose ‘Dargavel Village’, Bishopton, after finding her dad’s book on the history of Bishopton and noticed a photograph of Dargavel House in the grounds of the old Royal Ordnance Factory site.
  • BAE Systems’ ambitious regeneration project will transform an 1800-acre site into a thriving new community incorporating modern homes, recreational facilities and a range of commercial and community buildings.

This multi-million pound project will create a beautiful living space with around 2500 new homes, 150,000sq m of commercial and employment related spaces within a business park, a sizeable community woodland park offering recreation and open space areas, a library, health centre and a brand new, purpose-built primary school.

It is due for completion in 2026.
