CONSTRUCTION works are continuing to progress at the 146-home, Queens Quay Regeneration project in Clydebank.
New drone photos show the progress of the £27million development being delivered on behalf of Cube Housing Association, part of Wheatley Group, in partnership with West Dunbartonshire Council and Clydebank Housing Association.
Once complete, the development – which includes £15.6 million in grant funding from the Scottish Government – will have 146 homes, all for social rent, with a mix of one, two and three-bed flats, and 14 adapted for wheelchair users. 29 will be owned and let by West Dunbartonshire Council and 37 by Clydebank Housing Association with the rest remaining with Wheatley.
Wheatley Director of Regeneration David Fletcher said: “It is exciting to see the fantastic progress being made on these much-needed homes at Queens Quay. We are delighted to be working with West Dunbartonshire Council and Clydebank Housing Association on delivering the development as part of the wider £250 million regeneration of the old John Brown’s shipbuilding yard.
“I’m sure our tenants are going to enjoy living in these modern, stylish and energy-efficient homes.”
CCG is also developing four commercial units which will be managed by Clysdeside Regeneration Limited, the Council‘s partner in the wider delivery of the Queen’s Quay masterplan.
David Wylie, CCG Managing Director, said: “CCG use an innovative mix of offsite manufacturing processes and ‘Modern Methods of Construction to create our homes which enables us to construct at an enhanced pace whilst maintaining quality standards. Our Contracts team is doing a fantastic job and I look forward to seeing how the project will progress over the coming months”.
