Building Futures


Tenants are settling into their new homes at the latest new council house building project at Community Road, Bellshill.

A total of 25 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses (3 of which are designed for wheelchair users); 2 x 1 bedroom cottage flats; 1 x 2 bedroom wheelchair standard bungalow and 1 x 3 bedroom wheelchair standard bungalow have been delivered as part of North Lanarkshire Council’s ambitious new housebuilding programme that will aim to deliver 5,000 new homes by 2035.

CCG (Scotland) is a strategic partner of the Council having led the delivery of various developments (over 300 homes) since 2018 as a result of direct award procurement.

Marking the completion of the development was Housing Convener, Councillor Heather Brannan-McVey, who was joined by Pamela Humphries, Laura Quinn, Robbie Mooney, Billy Hetherton and Tony Mallaghan from our housing and new supply teams and Chris Murray from CCG.

Patrick Talbot, a new tenant, welcomed the convener into his new family home.

Councillor Heather Brannan-McVey, said:

“It’s always pleasing to see the completion of our new build projects, from the initial sod cutting to our tenants moving in and making their new houses their new homes. It was great to meet the Talbot family today, visit them in their new home and hear first-hand their experience of moving into one of our new builds.

“We’re making real progress in delivering more new affordable homes across North Lanarkshire, regenerating our communities and town centres, creating jobs and boosting the local economy. I hope our tenants enjoy their new homes which are built for the future and will last for generations to come – all part of our long-term vision to make North Lanarkshire the place to live.”

All of the homes meet Housing for Varying Needs and Secure By Design requirements. They are also constructed using advanced offsite methods of build with CCG’s iQ Timber System delivering quality and enhanced thermal performance which will support tenants’ comfort and tackle fuel poverty whilst ensuring long-term added value for the Council. 

CCG (Scotland) Managing Director, David Wylie, added:

“Community Road is another great example of how North Lanarkshire Council and CCG are supporting communities across the region through housing-led regeneration. High in quality and energy performance thanks to our enhanced methods of build, the homes will deliver real, transformative change for the new residents and I am delighted to see that they have settled in so well.

“With over 300 affordable homes on-site, our partnership with North Lanarkshire Council is very much ongoing and we look forward to bringing more developments to completion over the course of this year.”

Alongside the creation of 29 new homes, CCG also delivered a range of initiatives that have supported the wider community in Bellshill including two new jobs, three work placements, engagement with local schools and £3000 investment.

Works are also continuing at Dykehead Road where CCG is delivering the Council’s first-ever net zero homes. Forming part of the 150-home Holehills Regeneration in Airdrie, eleven of the nineteen pilot plots were handed over to tenants earlier this month with each home specified with a zero-emissions energy strategy, an enhanced renewable energy system and the addition of solar battery storage.
