They form part of a number of developments by Loretto Housing Association, part of Wheatley Group, which is building 111 affordable homes across central Scotland.

The new homes – in Falkirk, Cardonald in Glasgow, and Bishopton in Renfrewshire - will all be for social rent, bringing much-needed housing for local people in the three communities.

They include 21 homes at Cobblebrae Farm, to be built by contractor Sim Building Group, and funded by a £1.8m grant from the Scottish Government.

They will be next to Cobblebrae Community Woodland.

Douglas Robin, chairman of Loretto, said: “We are delighted to start work on these three affordable housing developments. They will transform previously derelict sites, providing spacious, modern and energy-efficient homes for local people.

“I’m sure the new homes will make a big difference to the quality of life of the people who live in them.”
