Glasgow development receives ministerial visit

CCG MD Calum Murray with Kevin Stewart MSP

CCG Homes has welcomed Scotland’s housing minister Kevin Stewart MSP to its Riverford Gardens development in Glasgow’s south side.

Overlooking the White Cart River and Auldhouse Park, the 156-home site includes a range of property types. The minister received a tour of the project and visited showhomes, including a three-storey terraced villa which was the recent winner of the Herald Property Awards Best Family Home (Small) for 2019.

Housing minister Kevin Stewart said, “These quality new homes will give owners a sense of pride and belonging, as well as contributing to a vibrant community in the south of Glasgow. This development is testament to the strength of Scotland’s new build sector, which last year saw the highest increase in both starts and completions since 2008. It is also helping us deliver more housing across the country, providing people with a warm, safe place they can call home.

“I am particularly impressed by the energy efficiency of these new homes. When homes have good energy efficiency standards, they are warm, cheaper to heat and produce less greenhouse gas emissions. We will continue to ensure that all homes and buildings across Scotland meet the challenge of the climate emergency.”

CCG Homes MD Calum Murray added, “It was a pleasure to welcome the housing minister to Riverford Gardens and show him the progress made since starting on site in 2018. Pollokshaws, a transformational regeneration area, has seen significant investment over the last few years with Riverford Gardens now being a major part of that. The development has attracted a wide range of demographics including 27 first-time buyers, who are keen to make the most of the local amenities and will contribute significantly to the local economy.”
