Law Place, a development of 105 units with a mix of terrace housing and flats ranging from 559sq ft to 1140sq ft. The site is just 12 miles from Glasgow city centre. It has great local shops, leisure facilities and a main shopping centre that has benefitted from significant investment in recent years. Law Place is close to three stations (one with a direct link to Glasgow city centre) as well as direct access to the M74 motorway. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh International Airports are less than 30 miles away.
There is a high demand in South Lanarkshire for more housing – this can be seen through the shortfall in new home completions over the period 2011–2016. There is an identified demand for 3,000 new homes to be available with just 1,874 likely to meet this target.
The local authority, South Lanarkshire Council (SLC) has set a target of 500 new homes under their ownership by 2020. This will be boosted by around 2,500 new homes for Housing Associations within the period. Along with large sites identified as Community Growth Areas, it is anticipated that sites such as Law Place will play a significant role in meeting this demand.
