Bellsmyre Regeneration Project Progress For Phase One

June 2024 Update

Following a review of the Bellsmyre regeneration project in West Dunbartonshire earlier this year, we have provided tenants and impacted factored owners with an update on the revised plans.

The new proposal plans to deliver an increased number of smaller phases over an extended period with the first phase consisting of 27 new homes to be built at Whiteford Avenue.

The housing mix within the revised proposal has been amended to primarily meet the needs of those tenants currently occupying temporary homes and those in future demolition phases. A revised plan is being finalised and is due to be submitted to West Dunbartonshire Council in July.

The original plan included the construction of 140 new, affordable, two-storey homes (now 138 homes) to replace 225 traditional flats.

Julie Cosgrove, Chief Executive, Caledonia Housing Association, said: “The project team has been working at pace to review and create a new proposal to advance the next phase of the Bellsmyre regeneration programme. Our goal at Caledonia is to ensure that we continue to contribute to increasing the supply of quality, affordable housing across Scotland.

“We have continued to engage with our tenants and the community in Bellsmyre to keep them updated on our progress and we hope to receive a positive response from West Dunbartonshire Council once our new proposal has been submitted.”

While the planning application is under review, we will be working with contractors, CCG, to finalise pricing for this phase of the regeneration and a funding application will be submitted to the Scottish Government later this year.

Construction is expected to commence in early 2025 subject to all approvals being in place.
