A BRAND new housing development in Govanhill has created 49 homes in the area.

Situated on Inglefield Street, the development was built with help from a Scottish Government grant of £2.7m, with the entire project costing £6.5m. 

The new homes, which were built by GHA and CCG Scotland, are located on the site of the former Women’s Hostel and Hermon Baptist Church and will be let by GHA’s partners in Wheatley Group, Lowther.

David Fletcher, Wheatley Group director of development, said: “We always want to help increase the supply of affordable homes across the city.

Glasgow Times:

“These mid-market flats will be a great option for people looking for a good quality, affordable home to rent close to Glasgow city centre.”

Glasgow Times:

Contracting company CCG Scotland created six full-time jobs, two trade apprenticeships and five work placements to work on the development, while also donating more than £7,000 to local causes during construction.

CCG Managing Director, David Wylie, said: “Inglefield Street truly is a landmark development for Govanhill and is another fine example of urban regeneration undertaken by CCG and our Wheatley partners in Glasgow.
