Undertaken in partnership with South Lanarkshire Council, hub South West and West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative, a total of 311 homes will be available in a mix of social rent and private sale with completion expected by 2023.
Prior to being demolished, the development was home to mid-rise terraced blocks of flats that were deemed not fit for purpose due to a lack of accessibility, damp and cramped conditions whilst being highly inefficient as regards energy performance. The new Council homes will be provided in a mix of one and two-bedroom flats as well as two and three-bedroom, terraced and semi-detached houses.
A total of 81 private dwellings, developed by CCG Homes, will also be provided in a mix of two and three-bedroom houses.
The design-led masterplan approach takes a tenure-blind approach to architectural form with the development placing emphasis on the provision of amenity space and community integration with a series of pedestrian and cycle routes.
Tackling fuel poverty was key was a key objective for the partners; all of the homes will be delivered using offsite methods of construction and CCG’s ‘iQ’ Timber System, ensuring enhanced levels of quality and thermal performance, thus, creating a reduction in energy demand and carrying the benefit of long-term savings to energy bills.
CCG Manufacturing has also designed and supplied all internal door sets.
A wide range of community benefit initiatives will be undertaken throughout the duration of the programme including the provision of jobs, the supporting of apprenticeships, work placements and curriculum support. A community endowment fund of £50,000 will also be donated by CCG to support locally-based projects as nominated by the community members themselves.
