Hous­ing move for old school

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

Twenty new homes are to be built at the for­mer Harthill Pri­mary School site.

Plans are in place for North La­nark­shire Coun­cil to con­struct a mix of cot­tage f l a ts, semi- de­tached bun­ga­lows and wheelchairac­ces­si­ble bun­ga­lows.

These form part of the coun­cil’s build­ing pro­gramme, NL Homes, which will see 2150 homes built by 2027.

Cut­ting the sod was Coun­cil­lor Al­lan Gra­ham, con­vener of enterprise and hous­ing com­mit­tee, and join­ing him was lo­cal coun­cil­lor Martin McCul­loch.

Com­mit­tee con­vener Coun­cil­lor Gra­ham said: “It’s great to see the progress that is be­ing made across so many sites in North La­nark­shire as part of our NL Homes pro­gramme.

“Not only do these de­vel­op­ments pro­vide qual­ity homes for lo­cal peo­ple but they also pro­vide re­gen­er­a­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties on a num­ber of va­cant sites within the coun­cil area.

“I look for­ward to see­ing the homes tak­ing shape and be­com­ing part of a vi­brant hous­ing com­mu­nity.”

The de­vel­op­ment is be­ing de­liv­ered by Lovell and is ex­pected to be com­pleted by sum­mer 2018.
