Plans lodged for new amenity housing in Govan

A planning application has been submitted to create a new affordable housing development designed for the elderly in Glasgow’s South Side. 

Working in partnership with MAST Architects, Glasgow-based CCG (Scotland) Ltd has submitted proposals to create up to 47 amenity flats upon a 0.265-hectare site on the corner of Langlands Road and Golspie Street adjacent to Govan Cross Shopping Centre.

Proposals include a mix of 31 one-bedroom and 16 two-bedroom dwellings including five ground-floor plots capable of being adapted for wheelchair users. Spread across a series of two blocks connected by a communal amenity deck on the first-floor, future residents can expect to have full lift-accessibility as well as parking for up to fifteen vehicles.

CCG director, Calum Murray, said: The supply of affordable, energy-efficient homes that are capable of supporting Scotland’s ageing population is becoming more important by the day. A site like Langlands, which has been led entirely by CCG’s in-house Developments team, with its immediate access to amenities and transport links, strikes a perfect blend of place-making and housing designed for particular needs.

“Govan is an area that CCG know well and we are confident that the proposals designed by MAST will contribute greatly to the local community.”

MAST Architects director, Mark Johnstone, said: Langlands will provide much-needed warm and healthy homes whilst also helping to redefine a fragmented piece of local townscape. The addition of high-quality communal space in the form of the amenity deck is also a vital component in creating a modern design for the urban environment.

MAST are delighted to be working with CCG to bring forward this prominent site, continuing our 40-year involvement in the provision of high quality homes in the Govan area.”

Upon planning approval, construction would aim to commence in 2022 with the development delivered to the ‘Glasgow Standard’ of space and environmental performance.   

Both firms continue to be active in Govan with the delivery of a major development of 82 affordable homes, located on Nethan Street that is set to be completed on behalf of Elderpark Housing this spring.
