Housebuilder to invest £40m in Erskine site

CALA Homes (West) has started work on a 151-bed development in Erskine, which has been tipped to create hundreds of local jobs.

The housebuilder is investing £40 million in the project over the next four years. An economic impact survey undertaken by Lichfields revealed the completed housing scheme will boost the local economy, including a gross value add of £3.7 million per annum.

Graham McNeil, land director at CALA Homes (West) said, “Our latest development in Erskine will deliver quality housing while creating a strong community environment and demonstrates a long-term commitment to Renfrewshire. We will continue to work alongside key stakeholders to ensure the development meets the requirements of the local area and the people who live here. As well as delivering much needed private and affordable housing, CALA’s £40 million investment will create new jobs and unlock additional investment opportunities, which will help drive economic growth in the future.”

As well as continuing to deliver detached and family homes, CALA is diversifying into smaller houses and across other development sites there will be a greater ratio of flats to reflect changing demographics in the market.
