CONSTRUCTION work has begun on the final phase of a £75 million regeneration of Cumbernauld’s 12 tower blocks.
Working on behalf of Sanctuary Scotland, CCG will lead the redevelopment of the town’s Burns Road site with the delivery of 133 much-needed new homes built where Stuart House, Elliot House and Morison House once stood with completion expected in winter-2022.
The two and three-bedroom apartments will be managed by Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association and be available for social rent. The design includes communal gardens and traditional Scottish gables.
The development is support by £10m funding from the Scottish Government and as part of the wider regeneration initiative, CCG will create a range of community benefits including jobs, apprenticeships, curriculum support for schools and localised investment.
Pamela Humphries, head of planning and regeneration with North Lanarkshire Council, said: “We are delighted to see the final phase of the multi-storey redevelopment programme now underway to deliver much needed new, affordable housing for the people of Cumbernauld.
“The redevelopment of the Burns Road site marks the culmination of a successful partnership between Sanctuary, the council and the Scottish Government to not only deliver new high-quality homes in place of the former multi-storey flats but also help transform communities.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Sanctuary and our other partners to help meet the housing needs of the Cumbernauld area.”
CCG has previously been involved with the regeneration of the local area at the first of two phases at Hume Road – also on behalf of Sanctuary – consisting of 24 flats that were completed in 2017. We have also successfully delivered the multi-award-winning, 542-home Anderston Regeneration located in the west of Glasgow in 2018 and Newfield Square, Nitshill, in 2019.
