‘Landmark’ affordable homes development boosts Glasgow community

CCG has revealed that a new £6.5 million affordable homes development has already become a ‘landmark’ for Govanhill in Glasgow’s south side.

The site of a former women’s hostel and Hermon Baptist Church has been transformed into 49 one and two-bedroom flats. The homes were built by GHA and contractor CCG, and are being let and managed by GHA’s partners in Wheatley Group, Lowther.

As part of the contract with Wheatley, CCG created six full-time jobs, two trade apprenticeships and five work placements. The firm has also donated £7,000 towards local projects.

The project was supported by a Scottish Government grant of £2.7 million.

CCG MD David Wylie said, “Inglefield Street truly is a landmark development for Govanhill and is another fine example of urban regeneration undertaken by CCG and our Wheatley partners in Glasgow. With over 140 homes under construction across the city, we are working together to create a lasting legacy of quality, energy-efficient housing and providing a wide range of benefits to our communities.”

David Fletcher, Wheatley Group director of development, added, “We always want to help increase the supply of affordable homes across the city. These mid-market flats will be a great option for people looking for a good quality, affordable home to rent close to Glasgow city centre.”
