Re­gen­er­a­tion game

Wel­come for £6m in­vest­ment in To­ry­glen

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

A new £6mil­lion hous­ing de­vel­op­ment in To­ry­glen has been of­fi­cially named and “put on the map” ahead of homes go­ing on sale next year.

King’s View, a project from Cru­den Homes, is based to the north of Prospecthill Road, near Prospecthill Cir­cus.

Bailie Liz Cameron, a for­mer Lord Provost, per­formed the nam­ing as she un­veiled a new five- me­tre sign shaped like a Google map pin.

The site is one of eight Trans­for­ma­tional Re­gen­er­a­tional Ar­eas (TRA) in Glas­gow and will com­prise of 55 one, two and three bed­room homes for pri­vate sale.

Units will be sold Jan­uary.

Bailie Cameron, chair of Trans­form­ing Com­mu­ni­ties: Glas­gow and Ex­ec­u­tive Mem­ber for Jobs and the Econ­omy at Glas­gow City Coun­cil, said: “I am de­lighted to see the launch of this af­ford­able hous­ing de­vel­op­ment, a key part of what the part­ners in Trans­form­ing Com­mu­ni­ties: Glas­gow wish to achieve in this area.

“New homes of high qual­ity and fur­ther eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity can only be good for the city.”

She was joined at the cer­e­mony by John Gal­lacher, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Cru­den Homes and Gor­don Sloan, Chair of Glas­gow Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.

Cru­den are also build­ing 100 homes in the TRA on be­half of the hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion. The city coun­cil say this will boost the econ­omy, cre­ate jobs and de­liver new homes as well as com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties.

John Gal­lacher said: “Cru­den is proud to play its part in de­liv­er­ing much-

‘off plan’ from needed new af­ford­able pri­vate hous­ing at King’s View and by work­ing in part­ner­ship with GHA we are build­ing a new mixed ten­ure com­mu­nity in this part of Glas­gow.

“We ex­pect the King’s View de­vel­op­ment will at­tract the same high level of de­mand for qual­ity, af­ford­able homes that we wit­nessed at The Vil­lage.

“Buy­ing ‘off plan’ is again be­com­ing the norm for new hous­ing de­vel­op­ments and al­lows the buyer to pre­pare and plan their fi­nances six to nine months in ad­vance.”

GHA Chair Gor­don Sloan added: “This is another sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone in our am­bi­tious plans to re­gen­er­ate To­ry­glen.

“With the nearby homes for GHA ten­ants now tak­ing shape, th­ese homes for sale will give more peo­ple fur­ther choice for af­ford­able hous­ing in the area.”
