A new housing development in Hamilton is under construction as housing specialist Keepmoat bids to build on the wider regeneration in the area to meet local needs.

Keepmoat will be building 60 new homes on St Ninians Road, and will work in partnership with Clyde Valley Housing Association to deliver 20 properties for affordable rent, with the remainder for private sale.

The opening of the new development, which has been named Cooperfield, also coincides with the new allocation of Help to Buy Scotland; meaning purchasers will have the option of securing a new home in Hamilton with just a five per cent deposit and can take advantage of an interest free equity loan, of up to fifteen per cent, from government funding.

This is the second new housing development Keepmoat has launched in Scotland. The firm opened a Homes division late last year; which will work alongside the existing and successful regeneration arm of the business.

Sandy McBride, regional managing director for Keepmoat in Scotland, said: “The scheme will also offer wider benefits for the local community, including the creation of new training and employment opportunities for local people – which will support us to tackle the housing and skills shortage head on.”

Keepmoat has said it has a number of upcoming sites and job opportunities in the pipeline.
