Wheatley lay the groundwork for 69 Easterhouse homes

Wheatley Homes has launched a second pre-planning consultation governing the delivery of 69 homes in Easterhouse, Glasgow.

Land to the north of Lochend Road and bounded by Auchengill Road and Skelbo Path has been identified for a mix of detached houses and cottage flats.

A design team including Mast Architects, G3 Consulting Engineers and Oobe landscape architects have been assembled by Wheatley Homes for the build, which incorporates a play area and habitat for water voles.

Eliminating gas heating to tackle fuel poverty the highly insulated homes will instead rely on air source heat pumps and solar panels for energy.

Homes will range in size from two to four bedrooms.

Too sparse and under developed. Seems very poorly designed.

Thin / thin gruel -- not even filler.
At least is a ghost street being repopulated.
However it has a brutal design vibe -- phoned in.
Tick box design -- Almost as if no-one could be bothered.

Next up -- Baldragon Road.

Unless that is set aside for our furry friend the watervole -- you really couldn't make it up that 40% of a site with a history of prior development for social housing is being set aside for watervoles.
That is watervoles without access to a river.

That's right -- finding room watervoles on a site without water ...
In a housing emergency with waiting lists at breaking point.

But they have got a street name and postcode.
Dinduff Street -- the Easterhouse Serengeti.

While at Wyndford Road with the River Kelvin adjacent as in on your doorstep -- no space for watervoles.

And fewer homes.
Strange lot -- WHG.

What a waste of a site and of money! Knock eatserhouse down and re-build it denser and better.
