We have welcomed our tenants to a new social housing development at the former Rolls Royce site in East Kilbride. In partnership with the Scottish Government, South Lanarkshire Council and Barratt Homes, we have invested £4million to create 31 new homes as part of a wider new-build development.
Tenants are settling into their new homes and are already seeing the benefits. Nicola Glassford has been a tenant of WSHA for a number of years and received a transfer to the East Kilbride homes due to needing more space. Nicola commented: “I have three children and we were quite cramped in a two bedroom home so it is great to now have an extra bedroom. I really like it here and I have even saved money on my fuel bills due to the house being so well insulated.”
A first time tenant Derek McCallum added: “This is my first time living in social housing after years of renting privately and it is nice to have somewhere to call my own. The flat is a great size and it is in a fantastic location – my son and I are very happy here.”
Brian Gannon, Chief Executive Officer at WSHA highlighted: “We are delighted to have completed our homes in East Kilbride in partnership with Barratt Homes, the Scottish Government and South Lanarkshire Council. This is particularly pleasing for me for this development to be delivered in the town where I was born. More importantly it is reassuring to witness first-hand how we are able to continue to provide housing for tenants as their lives change. This development is a fantastic addition to the wider community and offers high-quality homes for families and individuals that meet a range of needs.” To find out more please read our press release.
