Plans have been submitted by CCG (Scotland) Ltd to build 330 homes in Whitlawburn as part of a £42m housing-led regeneration
CCG (Scotland) Ltd in partnership with Hub South West has submitted plans for 330 mixed-tenure homes to replace 380 existing flats with 230 homes for rent 100 for private sale.
The rented homes to be delivered on behalf of South Lanarkshire Council and West Whitlawburn Housing Cooperative will include one and two bedroom flats; two and three and four bedroom houses; cottage flats and bungalows. A proportion of the flats are to be to a standard suitable for elderly residents.
The private homes for sale will be delivered by CCG Homes.
Executive director of Housing and Technical Resources, Daniel Lowe said: “A master plan for the area was developed after extensive consultation with the local community over a number of years.
“A key aim of the masterplan is to create a distinctive and attractive residential development with streetscapes that deliver a seamless, integrated connection between homes for rent and sale whilst carefully connecting Whitlawburn into surrounding communities.”
Paul Farrell, West Whitlawburn Housing cooperative director said: “The vision that South Lanarkshire Council is displaying for the future of Whitlawburn is very impressive.
“We have been enthused by the council’s drive, ability and commitment to make this mammoth partnership project work successfully. The project will substantially and significantly improve the residential environment for all concerned.”
As part of the overall regeneration, CCG will also undertake a series of community benefit initiatives over the duration of the contract programme including job, training and apprenticeship opportunities as well as providing a series of contributions to the local community.
CCG director, Calum Murray added: “The CCG Group is delighted to have taken the next step forward in the transformation of Whitlawburn where we will ensure that all of the new homes for rent and sale will be delivered to the highest standards of quality and environmental efficiency.
“The opportunity to create a lasting legacy in our hometown is a hugely exciting prospect where we will complement the housing delivery with £50,000 of community investment as well as providing job and training opportunities.”
