New life for former school site as work starts on 75 new homes
Work has started on 75 new affordable homes on two sites in West Dunbartonshire.
Cube Housing Association is building 44 flats for social rent on the site of the old Bonhill Primary which closed in 2010.
And in Carrick Terrace in Dumbarton a further 31 Cube homes for social rent, together with new premises for a local shop, are starting to take shape on the site of old tenement flats.
Cube tenant and Board member, Jennifer Williamson, was joined by West Dunbartonshire Council’s housing and communities convener, Diane Docherty, to mark the start of the work at the £4.5 million Bonhill development in Main Street.
Cube Board member Jennifer Williamson said: “We are delighted to be bringing the site of the old Bonhill Primary back into good use for the community by providing these much-needed affordable homes.
“This development, and the one we’ve also started at Carrick Terrace, are just part of our plans at Cube to build 520 affordable homes in West Dunbartonshire in partnership with the council.”
