Swan Group, which specialises in the development and delivery of affordable housing, has had planning consent granted for a 35-unit development at Avon House, within Cumbernauld Town Centre.
Avon House, initially divided into one bedroom flats providing bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and living space, which later changed to offices, has been left unused for many years.
Providing much needed, high quality, affordable and social housing, Swan Group are currently delivering a range of developments across the UK, working closely with Housing Associations and Local Authorities to help reduce the current affordable housing shortfall and Local Authority waiting lists. For the Cumbernauld development Swan Group will work alongside project architects, i10 Design, and Jigsaw Planning for the duration of the development.
Phil McGinlay, Managing Director of Swan Group, said: “Now Swan Group has planning approval for 35 new homes in Cumbernauld Town Centre, we can’t wait to get started and bring life back to this important part of the community. We’re working hard to build more affordable housing across the UK, creating happy and sustainable communities. Swan Group will start work soon at Avon House, transforming it into high quality homes for the people of Cumbernauld.”
Katherine Sneeden, Director of Jigsaw Planning, said: “It’s great news for Cumbernauld that our planning application has been approved. This development will breathe new life into an unused space revitalising both the community and surrounding businesses in the area. We look forward to working with Swan Group on this transformative project.”
Situated around 12 miles from Glasgow city centre, Cumbernauld has regular transport links to destinations across the country. The new apartments will be a short walk from the regular express bus service to Glasgow. Cumbernauld has a population of about 52,200 people, making it the largest town in the North Lanarkshire Council area. With multiple developments taking place across the town, Swan Group are helping to put affordable and high quality housing at the forefront of plans in Cumbernauld.
