Cube teams up with council for 126 affordable homes plan in Clydebank



Cube Housing Association and West Dunbartonshire Council have unveiled plans to deliver 126 new affordable homes on the site of a former school in Clydebank.

Under the detailed proposals submitted for planning, the 3.1-hectare site of the old St Andrew’s High School is to be split between 58 units for Cube and 68 for the council.

The local authority is leading the way on the design, procurement and management of the site, which has been derelict since 2010 and earmarked for housing for some time.

The development would be a mix of townhouses, bungalows and two and three-storey blocks of flats.

Cube director David MacKenzie told Scottish Housing News: “If the plans are approved, we hope to start work on 58 much-needed homes for social rent in Clydebank before the end of the year.

“The plans are part of our strategic partnership with West Dunbartonshire Council which will see Cube build many more affordable homes across the area.”

Work would start in January 2019 and be completed by September 2020.

Elsewhere work is currently underway on 20 new Cube homes in Auld Street, Dalmuir; 31 homes at Carrick Terrace, Dumbarton; 44 homes on the site of the former Bonhill Primary School in Bonhill; and 26 at Dumbain Road, Balloch, with work on another nine homes at Carrochan Road, Balloch due to start before the summer.
