Timber Houses Residents Meeting

A second meeting to discuss external wall insulation plans has been arranged for residents of the Timber Houses, Blantyre.

People are invited to come along to Priestfield Hall on Tuesday 23 April 2019 between 6pm and 7pm. This will be more of drop-in session by comparison to the first formal meeting, which was well attended.

Representatives from South Lanarkshire Council will be in attendance this time, notably missing from the first meeting. Also attending will be Engie, Home Energy Scotland and Home Energy Lanarkshire will be on hand to address any questions regarding the work.

The controversial work planned is not for everybody and has caused some division in the community, setting a right balance between the look of the houses changing from wood to render and consideration of improving insulation properties, thus making the homes warmer and more utility friendly.

One thing is for sure, the look of the Timber Houses, protected for decades by previous planning law, is suddenly about to change, with many homes due to receive a new rendered look.
