CCG to build new affordable housing in Carluke

CarlukeCCG (Scotland) Ltd is set to commence work on a new affordable housing project in Carluke this month.

The Glasgow-based construction company has been commissioned by South Lanarkshire Council to create 24 new houses for social rent at Belstane Gate in the north of the town. The properties are situated a short walk from local amenities, as well as Carluke Primary School and Castlehill Bowling Club.

Calum Murray, director of CCG (Scotland) Ltd, said: “We have a strong track record working with local authorities across Scotland to help increase the quality and quantity of the country’s social housing stock. These new houses will be in high demand, particularly amongst families due to the development’s location close to the local primary school.

“We look forward to getting our work off the ground at Belstane Gate, and to working with South Lanarkshire Council over the coming months to further develop our business proposition in this part of the country.”

Carluke 2Annette Finnan, South Lanarkshire Council’s head of housing services, said: “This development of 24 new family homes in Carluke is the latest phase in South Lanarkshire Council’s Home+ programme.

“With generous space standards and high quality kitchens and bathrooms the new homes incorporate renewable technologies such as solar panels, ensuring energy efficient homes.

“Designed by South Lanarkshire Council’s in house Design Team and built with the support of Scottish Government Grant funding the development will deliver much needed affordable homes in the area.”

The new houses will be created using ‘off-site’ construction methods through the manufacture of a closed panel timber system at CCG’s Cambuslang factory, CCG OSM.

CCG expects to deliver Belstane Gate within a 46 week programme.
