Work begins on build of 101 council homes at former Renfrewshire school site

WORK has commenced on the build of 101 new council homes at the site of the former St Fergus Primary School in Renfrewshire.

The project comes as part of Renfrewshire Council’s ongoing transformation of the Ferguslie Park area, with AS Homes delivering the modern, energy efficient homes in the latest phase.

The local authority said that it is hoped the properties will be ready for tenants to move in by the end of 2022, with the vast majority being available for council rent – but some could be made available for shared equity for existing owners in the area.

Paul Kelly, MD of AS Homes, commented, “We are pleased to be working with Renfrewshire Council again, having established an excellent relationship. We have a long history of providing affordable homes in Paisley and we are proud to be extending this further with these additional new homes in Ferguslie Park.”
