Plans submitted for new Glasgow homes

DEVELOPERS behind a £90 million mixed-tenure project in Glasgow say plans to build more than 600 new homes in the city have moved a step closer.

A masterplan for the site in Hamiltonhill – located between Maryhill and Possilpark – has already received planning permission in principle. Developers have now submitted a further application to build the first of four phases.

Robertson will deliver the homes for Queens Cross Housing Association, with their affordable homes business delivering the first 177 social housing units, in partnership with Urban Union, who will deliver a further 24 homes for sale as part of Phase A.

Enabling works are due to begin this summer, pending planning permission. Collective Architecture are architects on the project.

The new homes will comprise a mix of medium-rise flats and cottage flats for smaller households and terraced housing for larger families. There will also be provision for five parks throughout the overall development including a community garden.

Neil McKay, MD at Urban Union said, “We are specialists in regeneration having successfully delivered projects in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth. For regeneration projects to be successful, it is essential that the community are part of the journey and have a genuine input into the planning process. We are delighted to be involved in the Hamiltonhill regeneration and we will continue to engage with the community throughout the planning stages and project delivery.”

Shona Stephen, chief executive of Queens Cross Housing Association added, “We are delighted to work with Robertson to deliver our Hamiltonhill transformation. We have been working with the local community and Glasgow City Council to create a sustainable plan for the area and we are now at the stage to start delivering on our proposals. We will continue to work closely with local residents to ensure they are at the centre of the regeneration process at Hamiltonhill.”
