Cambuslang apartments offer accessible and affordable accommodation

A major affordable housing development in Cambuslang has been completed, delivering 86 homes at Bridge Street close to the River Clyde

Delivered by The JR Group on behalf of Link Group the rental properties comprise a mix of flats, terraced and semi-detached properties including eight wheelchair exemplar homes within walking distance of Main Street.

Designed for commuters heading into nearby Glasgow the project incorporates 125 parking spaces as well as a children's play park with adult seating to help foster a sense of community.

Overseen by Barham Glen Architects on former industrial land flanking the town centre the build employs a materials palette of facing brick and zinc.

Planning approval for the project was granted in July 2018. 

A mix of one to three-bedroom properties are available

This looks like good quality social housing with some nice density although the design quality leaves a lot to be desired. However if it is designed for commuters why is parking up at 150%? This site is adjacent to Cambuslang station with quick, high frequency to town and even a direct Edinburgh service. Great bus service and cycle routes including the traffic free Clyde walkway are adjacent to. The main street is close by and there is a large supermarket across the street. If we cant reduce parking, car ownership and car dependency here - then where?

Would love to see a Nolli plan of this area, looks like there would be a lot of white.

This says there's a children's play park? Where exactly? I live in one of these new houses and there isn't a play park near here, the closest one being in Eastfield and its absolutely rubbish, covered in broken glass and barely any equipment for children to play on.

Hi Emma - there is an 'informal play' area and 'amenity grass space' off the cul-de-sac car park as marked in the plan above. Behind the MOT garage.
