PLANS Revealed For Major East End Housing Development

21 February, 2024 | News

DETAILED designs for a development of 173 houses and flats in Dalmarnock have been submitted for planning approval.

The properties would be built by CCG Homes on vacant, former industrial land at French Street and Carstairs Street.

There would be 54 private houses for sale and 119 units (five houses and 114 apartments) for social rent by Thenue Housing Association.

A design statement included with the application explains: “South Dalmarnock is in the process of re-emerging as a recognisable outer urban district in it’s own right, after many decades of population decline and urban decay.

“The intention is that the development will create a balanced and sustainable core for an identifiable new neighbourhood, with an appropriate mixture of housing types / tenure and outdoor space that will support a broad spectrum of residents.”

It continues: “Private terraced housing is comprised of two and three storey types with either three or four bedrooms. Social terraced types are all two storey, three-bedroomed types.

“Housing association apartments are a mix of one, two, or three-bedroomed types in a ratio which is designed to meet the local needs profile.

“Ground floor apartments include a proportion of one-bedroomed apartments which are designed to be readily adaptable for tenants who are wheelchair users.”
