New affordable homes to be delivered for Barrhead Housing Association
Bellway is to deliver much needed new affordable homes on behalf of Barrhead Housing Association located on Blackbyres Road in the town.
Located in a picturesque setting within walking distance of Gleniffer Braes Country Park, the collection of properties will form part of a second phase of residential development at Bellway’s own Rosemont Park estate.
Ten affordable homes will be built, designed to appeal to a broad mix of residents, including four, three-bedroom end terrace homes; four, two-bedroom mid terrace properties; and two larger three-bedroom semi-detached homes. Each property will benefit from stylish interior features including attractive kitchens and bathrooms, energy efficient heating and French doors leading to a private rear garden. Car parking will also be available to the front of each home.
Lorna Wilson, chief executive at Barrhead Housing Association, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Bellway to provide these much needed, high quality social rented homes, which are being delivered with the support of East Renfrewshire Council and the Scottish Government. The Barrhead Housing Association team is looking forward to settling ten families into their lovely new homes later this year.”
Work has started on site and the properties are scheduled for completion in this summer.
Pauline Coates, head of sales, Bellway Homes Limited (Scotland West), said: “Rosemont Park has been a popular development for home buyers and we are delighted to be collaborating with Barrhead Housing Association to support their drive and strategy to bring new homes to the local community.”
East Renfrewshire Council housing and maintenance convener, Councillor Danny Devlin, added: “East Renfrewshire continues to be a popular place to live and we are committed to increasing the availability of affordable housing, so it is fantastic to see this build get underway. I look forward to seeing the development complete and provide high quality homes in Barrhead for families.”
