New houses beneath development in Glenboig


83 new houses are currently being built on former farmland in Glenboig.

Persimmon Homes is building a £ 10.6 million new housing estate on 7 acres on Johnston Road in the village.

According to James MacKay, the group’s managing director for Northern Scotland, the company is trying to minimize the impact of the construction work on the site’s neighbors, especially given the increased traffic in the area.

He told the Airdrie and Coatbridge advertiser, “Providing much needed new homes is a priority for us as home builders, but we also understand that our site access is close to existing residents.

“One of the steps we’ve taken is to expand parking where possible to reduce congestion. Unfortunately, site workers can only travel together if they come from the same household under the restrictions in force. This means that additional vehicles can be parked near the construction site.

“We ask the local community to contact us if we are managing this as effectively as possible and we want to reassure residents that we are following the strict security measures currently in place.”

The new development, called Croft Rise, will have two to four bedroom homes and is Persimmon’s first in the home growth space.

Mr MacKay previously called it “an integral part of our North Lanarkshire expansion program,” and the home builder says more than a third of the planned homes have been reserved since the website officially launched four months ago.

The building permit was granted last August and includes a £ 700,000 developer’s contribution towards necessary improvements to the area’s school capacity, transport network and play areas.
