£6million housing project is underway

Glasgow housing developer Lovell has won the £6million contract to build 55 affordable and open market homes in Moodiesburn.

The Link Group project recently got underway at Mollins Gate, on the former site of the Moodiesburn House Hotel in Cumbernauld Road.

Planned for completion in summer 2017, it will comprise nine one/two-bedroom flats and eight two/three-bedroom houses for social rent for Link; 15 two-bedroom flats for shared equity sale by Link; and 23 two/three-bedroom houses for private sale by Lovell.

The scheme will create training opportunities for residents, including an apprenticeship, five jobs and seven work placements.
