Council approves 22 new East Kilbride Housing Association homes
A private housing development which will include 22 new homes for East Kilbride Housing Association (EKHA) has been approved by South Lanarkshire Council.
The £15 million project by developers London & Scottish Investments (LSI), delivered by house builders Balfour Beatty, will see 67 properties built for private sale and 22 affordable homes built and handed over to the housing association, the Daily Record reports.
The family homes will be built on five acres of derelict land at Redwood Crescent, Peel Park in East Kilbride, and the affordable homes will be delivered in the first phase.
Bryan Wilson, LSI development director, said: “I am delighted that this development has been granted planning permission for several reasons.
“The first is that it will provide a really good mix of family homes for sale and affordable homes, managed by the local housing association, for those with social needs.
“I am also delighted to see this site being transformed from derelict, non-productive land to an area making a significant contribution to East Kilbride’s prosperity and amenities.”
