affordable homes

East Dunbartonshire Council has unveiled proposals to demolish properties at Nithsdale Crescent in Bearsden to make way for new affordable homes.

The draft proposals set out plans for a mix of 26 new homes including large family homes with private gardens and smaller apartments.

These were developed following a 2017 feasibility study which considered four options for the redevelopment of the current flats, surrounding open spaces, and car parking areas in council ownership.

Councillor Billy Hendry, convener of the place, neighbourhood and corporate assets committee, said: “These proposals represent a great opportunity to transform this site and help meet the high demand for larger affordable housing in the area.

“Over the years, the Housing Service has regularly received complaints from tenants and residents about the site and instances of anti-social behaviour.

“The current open layout of the landscape around the blocks in part exacerbates these problems and we now have a chance to regenerate this area of Bearsden and offer local families high-quality housing in an attractive environment.

“I would encourage everyone who is directly affected by the new development to get in touch and make their views known.”

The council is also inviting everyone to a drop-in event at Bearsden HUB on Monday 12 August to discuss the new-build proposals.
