Affordable housing planned for Glasgow Road site East Dunbartonshire Council is planning to develop land at Glasgow Road, Kirkintilloch, for affordable housing.
At the Council meeting on 10 November, elected members agreed that the site, situated between the A803 and West High Street, be transferred to the council’s housing service.
Council Leader Rhondda Geekie confirmed: “The report summarised the offers, with conditions, we received following our recent marketing exercise in relation to the Glasgow Road site.
“The responses did not meet our expectations for the site and there was unanimous agreement that the land should be developed by the Housing Service for affordable housing - which is in line with the emerging Local Development Plan and will help to address the substantial demand we face in this area.
“Creating affordable housing in the town centre is also an important element of Kirkintilloch Masterplan, which includes the new homes built at Southbank.”
