1.769 acres in size, the site is due to deliver 40 units, all flats ranging from 592sq ft to 828sq ft. The site occupies a prominent position on Dumbarton Road with great access to the A82. Just a few minutes’ drive from Glasgow International Airport and close to the world famous Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park, the site offers homes at a consistently lower price than the national average.
In 2015 the average price of all tenures and types of housing was £118,000 against a national average of £173,000. The demand for affordable housing continues to grow as new build completions remain low.
The number of people in employment in West Dunbartonshire to April 2015 was 39,000 representing 66% of the working age population. This is a drop on last year’s figures and is 6.9% below the Scottish average. The Local Authority has identified the need to complete 80 affordable homes for rent per annum up to 2022. While this appears to be an achievable target, it is significantly ahead of completions per annum over the last 5 years.
