£8.5m Renfrew residential scheme wins go-ahead
August 22 2016
The Inchinnan Road project will be built on the site of the former Renfrew Junior FC pitch and will include a mix of flats and terraced homes.
Paul Kelly, managing director of AS Homes commented: “This is our third housing development to gain planning permission in just a few months, to build a total of 180 homes for social rental and sale across the west of Scotland, so it’s a very busy and exciting time for AS Homes.”
The new homes are being delivered on behalf of Sanctuary Housing Association with work on site getting underway this month for completion in early 2018.
The homes will be built using timber frame construction to speed delivery and enhance energy efficiency

Renfrew used to be widely regarded for its social housing like Steel Maitland's developments. What's happened?

'architecture' aside (and i use that term very loosely......) another sports facility / playing field turning into housing. A muddy goal-mouth does not a brownfiled site make....

That is inexplicably dreadful.

I find projects like this rather depressing and insulting. The sentiment seems to be 'if you're lucky enough to get affordable housing you shouldn't be worrying yourself about silly things like decent architecture. Just be grateful.' In-house design shouldn't be an excuse for terrible design
