New Coatbridge homes designed to meet the needs of older residents

A new amenity housing project in Coatbridge is underway, designed to meet the needs of older people.

CCG is working with Loretto Housing Association, part of Wheatley Group, to create 28 new homes for social rent. The development will comprise two, three and four-bedroom flats, including two properties which will be fully wheelchair accessible.

The homes are due to complete early next year and will be complimented by a private courtyard, communal garden space and a car park.

David Fletcher, Wheatley Group director of regeneration said, “These much-needed affordable homes will make a big difference to the area. I know people will enjoy living in these high-quality, energy-efficient homes which are designed to meet the needs of older tenants.”

CCG director Calum Murray added, “Muiryhall Road is a development that will be constructed using traditional methods, something that is relatively rare for CCG these days. This is also the second project to have commenced with Loretto association this year after works started on Shawbridge Street, Pollokshaws, in Glasgow’s south side this January. We look forward to continuing our work with Loretto and Wheatley Group in 2018 as we deliver projects across the central belt.”
