Building Futures


A new development of 46 homes for social rent is delivering an affordable housing boost for Govan.

Langlands Road, located on the corner of Golspie Road and Harmony Row, is a prominent town centre location adjacent to the Govan Cross Shopping Centre in the southside of Glasgow and will comprise 46 1 & 2 bedroom flats, equally split across two 6-storey blocks, for tenants over 55 years of age.

The site was purchased by CCG from LCP in September 2022 and upon receiving planning consent, construction began at the end of October 2022. Delivered entirely on a Design and Build basis, the development is being delivered in partnership with Trust Housing Association, forming part of the Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) ambitious new housebuilding programme, who have part-funded Langlands Road alongside support from Glasgow City Council.

Designed in partnership with MAST Architects, the development is set to be complete in early spring 2024.

Rhona McLeod, Trust’s CEO, said:

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with both Glasgow City Council and CCG (Scotland) to deliver affordable homes in Glasgow and play our part in the regeneration of Govan, one of the many communities we serve across the length and breadth of Scotland. This is our first new build project with CCG (Scotland) and we look forward to developing a long-term relationship that has the potential to deliver affordable housing and meet local housing need.”

Councillor Kenny McLean, convenor for housing at Glasgow City Council, said:

“It’s great to see the start of work on these homes for social rent in Govan, all the more so as they will meet a need for housing for people aged 55 and over. This development – supported by the council – joins a series of other housing and regeneration projects taking place in the wider area, all of which will improve the quality of life for local people.”

CCG (Scotland) director, Calum Murray, added:

“Our site start at Langlands Road is a big milestone for CCG. Working in partnership with MAST Architects, we took the land from a blank canvas and developed it into a hugely efficient affordable housing solution that is tailored to meet the needs of Trust and future tenants. It will now be built out entirely by the integrated construction and manufacturing expertise of the CCG Group and I look forward to seeing how works progress over the next year as we embark upon a new partnership with one of Scotland’s leading housing providers.”

The commencement of works at Langlands Road means that over 130 affordable homes are currently under construction in Govan by CCG. The 92-home Water Row is the first phase of housing-led regeneration at the “Water Row Masterplan”, located at Govan Cross, which will also conceive new retail opportunities as well as a link to the £26.5m Govan-Partick foot/cycle bridge that is set to open in 2024.

Langlands Road is also immediately adjacent to Nethan Street, a development of 82 affordable homes that was completed in 2021, and is also within a short distance of Cromdale Square, the site of the former Drumoyne Primary School on Shields Road which has been transformed into a new development of 49 affordable homes.
