Groundbreaking Housing Commitment Takes Shape

Groundbreaking Housing Commitment Takes Shape

Mark Griffin MSP has hailed North Lanarkshire Council's ambitious house building programme as an example for Scotland's other 31 local authorities.

The local MSP made the comments as construction begins on two new sites in Cumbernauld and New Stevenston. 22 homes will be delivered at Brown Road in Cumbernauld, while the site of the former New Stevenston Primary School will see 15 new homes built.

North Lanarkshire is currently Scotland's largest social landlord and in 2016 committed to the most ambitious house building programme in the country.

Mark said:

"North Lanarkshire Council is leading the way on new house building in Scotland. Since making their landmark commitment in 2016, works are taking place on a number of sites, including the new projects in Cumbernauld and New Stevenston.

"With over 167,000 people on housing waiting lists across Scotland, radical steps are required by the Scottish Government, councils and partners. North Lanarkshire Council's £160 million investment is an example to all.

"Programmes like this not only provide quality homes for local people, but they assist in reducing poverty and stimulating the economy."
