Work has started on 40 new homes in Viewpark as part of North Lanarkshire Council’s Building for the Future programme.
The houses are being constructed by Lovell Partnerships on the site of the former St Gabriel’s and Burnhead Primary Schools and Hozier Children’s Nursery in Laburnum Road.
When complete there will be 28 semi-detached homes, including two bungalows designed for wheelchair users, and 12 cottage flats.
Councillor Barry McCulloch, convener of housing and social work services, said: “I am delighted to see construction starting on another site in North Lanarkshire.
“The 40 properties in Viewpark will provide much-needed high quality, affordable, accessible homes for local people.”
