The development which includes grant funding from the Scottish Government and loan funding from CAF Bank  includes 18 new flats containing a mix of one and two-bed properties, with two of the flats specifically adapted for wheelchair users.

The creation of the affordable housing development also helped secure the long-term future of Clydebank Bowling Club, which was able to invest in the remaining facilities. During the build process The JR Group and Clydebank Housing Association also continued to support the club as part of their community benefits programme.

Partners including MAST Architects, engineers Cowal Design, development consultants Macdonald & Cameron, NBM cost consultants and energy and sustainability specialists Carbon Futures, as well as Clydebank Housing Association, worked with The JR Group on the project, which has also been given the support of Sportscotland.

“We are thrilled to be here today and to be delivering these new homes to our residents. Our management committee is committed to increasing its affordable rented housing stock for the benefit of current and future tenants, so it’s wonderful to see this project to come to life. 

“The JR Group has delivered these homes to an exceptionally high standard and has helped us meet the high demand for social housing in our area. These homes will go some way to meeting our current waiting list demand for affordable rented homes.

“This development is in the heart of our area of operation and will be a valued addition to our housing stock.”
