New Kirkintilloch affordable housing proposals on show

Local residents are being offered the chance to find out more about proposals to build 38 affordable homes in Kirkintilloch at a public event.

As part of the Kirkintilloch Town Centre Masterplan, East Dunbartonshire Council is proposing to develop affordable housing at the former Lairdsland Primary School in Kirkintilloch. The site is located on Kerr Street near the town centre.

The proposal is to build 38 affordable homes on the site which would include social rented and shared equity flats.

The public will be given an opportunity to meet the architects to discuss the proposals and give feedback.

The event takes place on Thursday 9 August 2018 at Park Centre, Kerr Street, Kirkintilloch, G66 1 LF from 3 - 8pm.

Councillor Billy Hendry, convener of the council’s place, neighbourhood & corporate assets committee, said: “The demand for affordable homes in East Dunbartonshire continues to grow.

This site forms part of the council’s affordable housing investment programme, which will deliver around 250 homes over the next three years, helping to meet the needs of local people who are finding it increasingly difficult to get on the housing ladder

“The engagement event is an opportunity for local residents who are interested in finding out more about the proposed new housing development to go along and get all the information they need.

“There will be council officers and the architects on hand to answer questions and provide further details on the plans and drawings that are being proposed.”

The plans displayed at the engagement event will also be available on the consultation pages of the council’s website.
