One wheel binding, could be a few things, but if you have had new pads and disks it's not likely to be any of the components. It could be a faulty abs pump or it could be a hand brake cable seized. Thule issue really comes down how involved with cars are you becuase if you don't do any of your own work I would just take it back to your garage and have them check it out

I’d start by getting the calipers rebuilt as it sounds as if that’s what you have, did the same kind of thing on my astra h Sri 150 and it’s done it on my j 2.0 elite too, both have rear discs so it must be a thing with them. I remember back in the day if you lowered your nova it used to upset the brake balance especially if you’d done the rear disc conversion you had to swap the brake balance valve for the drum version as there was too much pressure going to the back axle and it used to lock up as soon as you thought about using the brakes, I know we are 25 years on but perhaps it’s the same solution.
