Hadden Group begins work on £3.9m council housing development

North Lanarkshire Council

HADDEN Group has started work on a £3.9 million North Lanarkshire Council housing development.

It comes as part of the local authority’s pledge to deliver 5,000 new homes by 2035. The latest project at the former Chilterns Care Home in Chryston is the 41st new council house site in the constituency either complete or underway.

It will feature 21 new affordable homes comprising of 17 flats and four cottage flats – with eight being designed for wheelchair users. The development will include a communal garden, a parking area.

Pam Humphries, head of planning and regeneration at North Lanarkshire Council, said, “It’s always pleasing to see our new housing developments get underway, particularly with the challenges the Covid-19 pandemic is presenting. This project signals the progress we’re making, and continue to make, in providing modern, affordable and energy efficient homes for our tenants.

“Our new homes are designed and built to the highest standards with energy efficiency measures that help our tenants save money on running costs while protecting the environment and they all meet housing for varying needs, which means homes are more accessible to adapt to tenants’ mobility needs. They are built for the future and will last for generations to come.

“Our ambitious housing plans support the regeneration of our local communities and our town centres; provide employment and boost the local economy and improve the lives of our tenants – all part of our long term vision to make North Lanarkshire the place to live.”
