LONDON-Two key decisions by the Scottish Executive have brought the regeneration of the former Ravenscraig steelworks south of Glasgow a step closer. Wilson Bowden Developments’ plans for Ravenscraig include over 3,500 new homes, 1 million sf of retail and leisure facilities in a new town centre, and 2 million sf of industrial and business space.
