TENANTS are being consulted over plans to transform a Glasgow community by knocking down multi-storey blocks and building hundreds of houses.
Glasgow Housing Association is proposing regeneration of the Wyndford area of Maryhill.
Four outdated tower blocks on Wyndford Road would be demolished to make way for the new homes.
The blocks, which comprise bedsits and one-bedroom flats, have low levels of occupancy and high rates of turnover.
Association chair Bernadette Hewitt said: “It’s important the tenant voice is heard at every stage of the process as the community’s views and feedback will directly shape and influence the proposals.
“Tenants in the four blocks identified for demolition will be fully supported to find alternative homes in areas of their choice.”
GHA, part of Wheatley Group, is proposing to transform the community over the next five years at a cost of £54million.
Other aspects of the proposals include:
— Creating attractive outdoor spaces and communal allotments
— Better car parking, bin stores, lighting, CCTV and new video door-entry systems
— A new 24/7 concierge station
— Electric car charging points and new bike stores
— Community artwork to record the history of the area
The independent tenant consultation runs until 14 January 2022.
