Work begins on £3.9m council housing development

North Lanarkshire Council has seen work begin on a major £3.9m council housing development the council is overseeing in its region, as part of a wider pledge to deliver 5,000 new homes by 2035.

The development project, taking place at a now-disused site in Chryston, North Lanarkshire, will deliver 21 new affordable homes for the local authority, comprised of 17 flats and four cottage flats - with eight being specifically designed for wheelchair users.

The development will also include a communal garden and a parking area.

North Lanarkshire Council has made significant strives towards achieving it’s ambition new homes target, as well improving the council’s housing stock. The site in Chryston will be the 41st council house site in the constituency either underway or completed.

Pam Humphries, Head of Planning and Regeneration at North Lanarkshire Council, said: “It’s always pleasing to see our new housing developments get underway, particularly with the challenges the Covid-19 pandemic is presenting.

“This project signals the progress we’re making, and continue to make, in providing modern, affordable and energy efficient homes for our tenants.

“Our new homes are designed and built to the highest standards with energy efficiency measures that help our tenants save money on running costs while protecting the environment 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.

“Our ambitious housing plans support the regeneration of our local communities and our town centres; provide employment and boost the local economy and improve the lives of our tenants – all part of our long term vision to make North Lanarkshire the place to live.”
