Link completes new development for social rent in Carntyne

Link Group Ltd’s development at Eastfields, Carntyne has been officially opened by Glasgow City Council’s Convener for Neighbourhoods, Housing & Public Realm Councillor Kenny McLean.

The £6.4 million construction of 49 homes for social rent began in March 2016 using £3.3 million funding from the Scottish Government.

Built by Bellway Homes, Eastfields comprises a mix of one and two-bedroom flats, three-bedroom houses and two-bedroom bungalows and includes five wheelchair exemplar units.

Each property has been designed to achieve the Building Regulation Silver Standard, with high levels of insulation, solar panels and Air Source heating systems, creating comfortable, energy efficient and economical homes.

Craig Sanderson, Chief Executive of Link Group said: "We are delighted to have been supported by the Scottish Government and Glasgow City Council to enable us to build these new, high quality homes. Eastfields has been our first new build development in the Glasgow area for a number of years.”

Councillor McLean added: "It is always pleasing to see new quality homes in Glasgow, all the more so when the homes - like this development in Eastfields - meet the different needs of a range of people.  I am also delighted that Glasgow City Council worked with a number of partner organisations to help deliver these homes, and I hope that all the new residents enjoy living there."
