CCG (Scotland) has begun work on a new £10.6M affordable housing development as part of North Lanarkshire Council’s strategic partnership.
The beginning of works were marked in a sod-cutting ceremony earlier this month in Wishaw. In attendance at the ceremony were Councillor Heather Brannan-McVey, who is Convener of Housing and Regeneration, also in attendance were CCG Director, Calum Murray and the Dimsdale Road site Manager, Logan Boyle.
Councillor Brannan-McVey said: “Today (Friday March 13th, 2020) marks the first of a number of exciting events planned by our new build team signaling 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 finalist 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.”
The new development on Dimsdale Road, Wishaw, will feature 61 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, two houses, and two bungalows which will be fully adapted for wheelchair users. Building works are due for completion in Spring 2021.
CCG Director, Calum Murray added: “Dimsdale Road represents the second development to get underway as part for 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.”
