Milestone for new Clydebank affordable housing project

THE JR Group has announced it is marking a major milestone in the development of a new affordable housing development in Clydebank, as the timber kit frames for the homes have now been fully erected and the external brick work due for completion within the next two weeks.

The site, located on John Knox Street at the site of a former bowling green at Clydebank Bowling Club, is set to feature 18 new flats including two wheelchair accessible units.

The project, being delivered on behalf of Clydebank Housing Association, is expected to be completed towards the end of this year following the completion of the remaining internal works.

As part of JR’s commitment to the local communities they work in, a donation was made to Clydebank Bowling Club, which allowed the group to host its Open Fours Day in August.

Andrew Dallas, project director for the JR Group, said, “We are thrilled with the progress of the development in Clydebank, the imminent completion of the external works really shows the progress we are making at the development, which is our second collaboration with the Clydebank Housing Association. Along with our commitment to bring affordable housing to the area, we were also happy to continue to support the community at Clydebank Bowling Club, who have supported our project since its conception.”

The JR Group also supported Clydebank Housing Association to mark Scottish Housing Day on September 14 with a £300 donation.

Lynette Lees, chief executive at the Clydebank Housing Association, said, “We are delighted that The JR Group have donated a financial contribution to allow Clydebank HA to purchase a supply of blankets, air fryers and slow cookers to donate to some of our tenants. Both Clydebank HA and The JR Group are committed to delivering new homes in the area and providing continuous support to our local communities.”
