A consultation has been launched on plans to demolish four high-rise flats in Maryhill to make way for ‘one of Scotland’s biggest regeneration projects in recent times’.

Glasgow Housing Association (GHA), part of the Wheatley Group, said that its proposals would deliver ‘hundreds’ of new energy-efficient affordable homes in north Glasgow.

It describes the four high-rise flats at 120, 151, 171 and 191 Wyndford Road as ‘outdated’, adding that the blocks – which comprise of bedsits and one-bedroom flats – have ‘low levels’ of occupancy and ‘high rates’ of turnover.

The housing association said that tenants in the blocks would be given a choice of another home in the area or in another Wheatley community.

GHA Chair Bernadette Hewitt said: “It’s important the tenant voice is heard at every stage of the process as the community’s views and feedback will directly shape and influence the proposals.

“Tenants in the four blocks identified for demolition will be fully supported to find alternative homes in areas of their choice.”
