Affordable homes proposed in Dalmarnock
Scottish house builders, Springfield Properties, have submitted a planning application notice to Glasgow City Council announcing their plans for 204 affordable homes along Dalmarnock Road in Glasgow.
Opposite the Dalmarnock train station; the 2.3ha of land was previously used as a goods yard before closing in 1960. The pocket of land has lain vacant since then.
The developers are proposing to transform this space with 5-6 storey apartments blocks surrounded by open communal spaces in keeping with the urban feel of the area.
Within the area covered by the Clyde Gateway Regeneration programme – one of the largest in Scotland – Springfield Affordable Housing Director, Tom Leggeat, feels the timing is great:
“The Clyde Gateway Regeneration is already seeing results, particularly after the success of the 2014 Common Wealth Athletes Village.
“Springfield want to support the organisation, and the area, by introducing new highly energy efficient affordable apartments which will help the Council meet affordable housing targets.
“We are still at the very early stages of the planning process having only recently notified the council of our intention to submit a planning application within the next few months, but we are excited to send them our proposals and look forward to hearing their feedback.”
The plans are due to be officially submitted before the end of the year with a public consultation scheduled 6th September at the Legacy Hub, part of the Chris Hoy Velodrome in Dalmarnock, Glasgow.
