3,000 Homes Are To Be Built In Glasgow In The Next Five Years

Recommended Posts


THREE thousand homes are to be built in Glasgow in the next five years in a £120million project that will transform the city's skyline.

Council leader Steven Purcell today said it would be a "housing revolution" that would see the worst of the multi-storeys and other rundown properties demolished.

He revealed 2400 homes would be built by 2011 by housing associations at a cost of £96m.

That is on top of the completion of 600 homes where work is already under way in a scheme worth £24m.

It is also in addition to plans unveiled by Glasgow Housing Association last September for 2000 new flats and houses.

Mr Purcell said: "This is nothing short of a housing revolution for the people of Glasgow.

"At long last, we will be able to consign the dark days of damp and threatening high-rise living to the dustbin of history."

The rundown multi-storeys and other dilapidated properties will be replaced by socially-rented homes, with local communities deciding what kind of houses they will be and influencing where they will be built.
