Almost three thousand new housing association homes are in the pipeline for Glasgow in the next few years.

Dozens of projects of between 10 and 250 new homes have either been started or approved.

A list of projects 'legally committed to' in April this year show 2200 homes across 35 projects from more than 20 housing associations.

Last year house building stalled due to the coronavirus lockdown but it is expected that projects will be delivered now construction has re started.

The industry however has suffered from factors including a shortage of materials including brick and plasterboard, delays in materials arriving from abroad and self-isolation of construction squads where there has been a positive covid case.

The plans committed to across the city include hundreds for social rent, including 175 homes at Hamiltonhilll by Queens Cross housing association, 166 by Crudens at Castlemilk, 84 at Abbeycraig by Lochfield Park, 77 homes at Abercromby Street by Thenue HA and 60 at Dalmarnock Station by West of Scotland.

Another 60 homes are being built at Castlemilk Drive by Cassiltoun, 60 more by link at Larkfield and Sanctuary are building 56 at Hawick Street in Yoker.

Southside are building 59 at St Andrew’s Drive phase 2, and another 32 in a third phase.

Glasgow West are building 55 at Dover Street, Linthouse are building 49 at Drumoyne and Shettleston HA are building 44 at St Mark’s.

Many smaller developments are taking place including Maryhill HA with 26 at Botany Corner, 22 at Rothes Drive and 16 at Smeaton Street in Ruchill.

Wheatley are building 32 at Hallrule Road, 26 at Damshot Crescent and 22 at Carnwadric Road, all for social rent.

New Gorbals are building 327 at North Gate, Govanhill 24 at Butterbiggins Road and Glenoaks 30 at Kilmuir Crescent.

Mid market rent developments include 252 homes at the old meat market site, in Gallowgate, by Home and 123 at Calton Village by Wheatley Group.

Some are mixed social rent and mid market on the same site.

Other mid-market rent developments include 70 homes in Garscadden by Wheatley group, 54 at Dalmarnock Station by West of Scotland HA, 36 by Sanctuary at Hawick Street in Yoker, 33 by Link at Larkfield and 18 by Maryhill HA at Botany Corner.

There are 756 homes in proposed new projects this year including 129 in Dalmarnock, Phase 3, by Link, 99 at Water Row by Govan housing and 90 at Dundashill by West of Scotland.

Councillor Kenny McLean, City Convener for Neighbourhoods, Housing and Public Realm at Glasgow City Council, said: “We welcomes the funding from the Scottish Government, which will allow us and our housing association partners to deliver our Affordable Housing Investment Programme over the next five years. 

“The £537million funding will provide much needed new affordable, energy-efficient homes for tenants, with low running costs. 

“The funding will help to meet the housing supply targets set out in Glasgow’s Housing Strategy - agreed following a comprehensive Housing Needs and Demand Assessment - and will contribute to the Scottish Government’s Housing to 2040 target of 50,000 new affordable homes across Scotland by 2026/27.
