A NEW development of affordable housing in Carluke built by Rosewood Homes has been formally handed over to Clyde Valley Housing Association.
The £2.6million development on the site of the old Carluke Rovers stadium at Shieldhill Road comprises five blocks of nineteen two bedroom and six one bedroom properties.
Keys to the development, which was completed ahead of schedule, were handed over to Clyde Valley Housing Association’s clerk of works Graham Morrison by Rosewood Homes Construction Director Lou Lauder.
Lou, from Carluke, said: “We are delighted to have continued our partnership with Clyde Valley Housing Association in the project which will provide much-needed, high quality new homes in Carluke.
“We have an excellent relationship with Clyde Valley Housing Association and we currently have two other projects in Carluke and Larkhall with them already confirmed. Work on them will start in the near future.”
Campbell Boyd, chairman of Clyde Valley Housing Association, said: “It is very pleasing to be working with our partners at Rosewood Homes and see the positive outcomes and our ambitions to address the demand for high quality affordable social housing being realised.
“The board of the association is committed to meeting the significant demand for housing need and growing our housing stock with high-quality, energy-efficient properties
“All in all, our aim is to offer a complete package to our customers, providing them with great homes in a pleasant environment and in which they can take pride and enjoy living and this is definitely the case at this new estate in Carluke.”
Rosewood Homes now move on to two other projects in Carluke with building on 12 luxury flats starting in March on the site of the old Welfare Hall at Sandy Road and an application for planning permission submitted for six luxury detached houses at Luggie Road.
Lou added: “As well as affordable, social housing there is a need for high-quality private housing in Carluke and the surrounding area and we have established a reputation for delivering high-end workmanship over many years.
“Because of that the Sandy Road and Luggie Road projects are already attracting attention from potential buyers.”
