WCN Editorial Team 1 Apr 2019 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Scotland-based privately owned construction and manufacturing company CCG, in partnership with hub South West, has submitted planning application for the construction of 330 homes in Whitlawburn as part of a £42m housing-led regeneration.

Under the plans, 330 mixed-tenure homes will be constructed, which will replace 380 flats, where 230 homes will be for rent and 100 for private sale.

The company will deliver the rented homes on behalf of South Lanarkshire Council and West Whitlawburn Housing Cooperative.

The rented homes will include one- and two-bedroom flats, two-, three- and four-bedroom houses, cottage flats and bungalows.

CCG said that some of the flats, including ground floor, and cottage flats will be constructed to an amenity standard suitable for elderly residents.

CCG Homes will deliver the private homes for sale and information will be made available for prospective buyers in the New Year.

West Whitlawburn Housing Cooperative director Paul Farrell said: “West Whitlawburn Housing Cooperative is delighted to be part of such an innovative, exciting and hugely important project for the Whitlawburn area.

“The vision that South Lanarkshire Council is displaying for the future of Whitlawburn is very impressive. We have been enthused by the Council’s drive, ability and commitment to make this mammoth partnership project work successfully. The project will substantially and significantly improve the residential environment for all concerned.”

CCG will also undertake community benefit initiatives over the duration of the contract programme as part of the overall regeneration.

The community benefit programmes will include job, training and apprenticeship opportunities, along with providing a series of contributions to the local community.

CCG director Calum Murray said: “The CCG Group is delighted to have taken the next step forward in the transformation of Whitlawburn where we will ensure that all of the new homes for rent and sale will be delivered to the highest standards of quality and environmental efficiency.

“The opportunity to create a lasting legacy in our hometown is a hugely exciting prospect where we will complement the housing delivery with £50,000 of community investment as well as providing job and training opportunities.”
