New affordable homes for Barrhead
Ten new affordable homes for Barrhead Housing association.
Barrhead Housing Association is to deliver new much-needed affordable homes at Blackbyres Road. The homes will be built by Bellway.
Located within walking distance of Gleniffer Braes Country Park, the homes will form part of a second residential development phase at Bellway’s Rosemont Park estate.
Ten affordable homes will be built, designed to appeal to a broad mix of residents, including four, three-bedroom end-terrace homes; four, two-bedroom mid-terrace properties; and two larger three-bedroom semi-detached homes. Each property will benefit from energy-efficient heating and French doors, leading to a private rear garden. Car parking will also be available to the front of each home.
Lorna Wilson, Chief Executive, Barrhead Housing Association, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Bellway to provide these much-needed, high quality social rented homes, which are being delivered with the support of East Renfrewshire Council and the Scottish Government.
“The Barrhead Housing Association team is looking forward to settling 10 families into their lovely new homes later this year.”
Work has started on the site, and the properties are scheduled for completion this summer.
East Renfrewshire Council Housing and Maintenance Convener Councillor Danny Devlin said: “East Renfrewshire continues to be a popular place to live, and we are committed to increasing the availability of affordable housing, so it is fantastic to see this build get underway.
“I look forward to seeing the development complete and provide high-quality homes in Barrhead for families.”
