DIMSDALE ROAD, the latest affordable housing development to commence as part of CCG and North Lanarkshire Council’s strategic partnership, welcomed delegates for a sod-cutting ceremony hosted on-site in Wishaw on 13/03/2020.
The £10.6m development will feature 61 two, three and four-bedroom homes including two homes and two bungalows that will be fully adapted for wheelchair users and is set for completion in spring-2021.
Cutting the sod was Councilor Heather Brannan-McVey, Convener of Housing and Regeneration, who was joined by local members as well as CCG Director Calum Murray and Dimsdale Road Site Manager, Logan Boyle.
Councillor Brannan-McVey, Convener of Housing and Regeneration, said: “Today (13/03/2020) marks the first of a number of exciting events planned by our new build team signalling the real progress we’re making in providing fantastic new homes for our residents.
“Our new build homes are built to the highest standards with energy efficiency measures to help save on running costs for tenants and they all meet Housing for Varying Needs, which means homes are more accessible to adapt to tenants’ mobility needs. They are built for the future and will last for generations to come. We’ve just received confirmation that two of our new build developments have been shortlisted as finalists for the Scottish Homes Awards – testament to the first-class new builds we’re delivering.
“I look forward to watching the progress on this site and to visiting the tenants making our new builds their homes.”
CCG Director, Calum Murray added: “Dimsdale Road represents the second development to get underway as part of CCG and North Lanarkshire Council’s strategic partnership that will see not only the creation of high-quality, energy efficient, affordable homes but also a wide range of community benefits including jobs, apprenticeships and locally-based investment. We thank North Lanarkshire Council for their ongoing support as we move towards the completion of Dimsdale Road in early-2021.”
