TWO Hundred Homes To Feature In First Phase Of Hamiltonhill Transformation

DETAILED plans have been drawn up for the first phase of new housing at Hamiltonhill in Glasgow.

The proposal is for 201 homes on land bounded by Hobart, Bardowie, Carbeth and Stonyhurst Streets. There will be a mix of two and three storey houses, townhouses, mainstream flats and wheelchair adaptable flats.

The masterplan for the whole area, being implemented by Queens Cross Housing Association, calls for 663 homes in four phases, with completion scheduled by 2025.

Hamiltonhill is between Maryhill and Possilpark to the north of Glasgow City Centre and has a high proportion of gap sites, including three recently demolished schools and others resulting from housing clearances. Its southern and western edges are bounded by the Forth and Clyde Canal.

Phase one has 177 homes for social rent and 24 homes for private sale.

Each phase has a public green space — Bardowie Street Community Garden will be delivered within phase one.

The phase one proposals are pending assessment by city planners.
