A NEW housing development in Bearsden will provide 31 affordable homes in the area.

The homes in Allander Road are the fourth and final to be delivered by a public/private partnership arrangement which involves Castle Rock Edinvar Housing Association, East Dunbartonshire Council, Cruden Estates and The Scottish Government.

The partnership has provided 103 much-needed affordable homes since 2006 throughout East Dunbartonshire.

Councillor Amanda Stewart, convener of housing and social services, was impressed by the homes when she got a tour of them at a special event to celebrate the completion of the project.

She said: “It gives me great pleasure to see these fabulous new flats occupied by local people, all of whom had been waiting for some considerable time to have a home of their own.

“In East Dunbartonshire we are working with our partners to tackle the shortage of affordable housing in the area, and this new development is another step in the right direction.”

Alister Steele, managing director of Castle Rock Edinvar, said: “This development marks the successful conclusion of a tripartite agreement between the public and private sectors and a housing association which has created not only affordable housing but thriving new communities throughout East Dunbartonshire.”

The Allander Road homes are owned and managed by Link Housing Association.
