Affordable housebuilder, Springfield Partnerships, will be submitting a planning application for 100 new homes for Harthill.

As part of the Government drive to increase affordable homes across Scotland, Springfield are planning to develop 9.7 acres of land in the North Lanarkshire area with 100 new homes.

The community consultation is taking place on the 9th March at the Harthill Community Education Centre, between 2pm and 7pm. Here, members of the public will be able to view plans proposed by the developer.

The £13m project will include 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes built within walking distance of the local Alexander Peden Primary School and the Harthill Health Centre.

Springfield Partnerships Managing Director, Tom Leggeat, explains: 

“This project is at the early design stages – a housing association has yet to be identified and there are a lot of details to be ironed out. But this is a key time in the planning process for the Harthill community.

“We’re holding a public consultation in March and encourage locals to come along. We’re looking for public views to help shape the development. This is an opportunity for those neighbouring the future development, or even those who are on a social housing waiting list for the area, to have their say.”

He continued: 

“Harthill is a key location for commuters as it is within close proximity to the M8 and the Blackridge train station is just a five minute drive away. We are aiming to increase housing opportunities allowing families and young professionals to have a safe home that is inexpensive to run.”

More information about the proposed plans will be available at the Community Consultation in March.
