Housing move for old school
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.
