With several council and private housing developments currently underway in Blantyre, housing prospects in this town, for once look fairly bright. With several of these developments in an advanced state of construction, it’s great to also see good progress being made on the new council houses at Morven Avenue, Blantyre.

Chair of South Lanarkshire Council Housing, Cllr Josh Wilson (centre) visited recently to check on progress. South Lanarkshire Council is investing in hundreds of new homes under its Home+ programme.

SLC commented, “Everyone needs somewhere to live that they can call home. Good quality, affordable housing provides firm foundations for promoting sustainable places, opportunities and a good quality of life.

‘Affordable Homes, Sustainable Places’ is South Lanarkshire’s five-year Local Housing Strategy (LHS) for 2017-2022 and is relevant to anyone who lives in or is moving to our area.”

The LHS sets out important housing requirements for the next five years, such as how many new homes are needed, and priorities for improving housing quality and energy efficiency, supporting people to live independently and addressing homelessness.
