CORDALE Housing Association have announced that work has started on their new office- with the demolition of the former Main Street shops.

The new office site is to be based in the heart of Renton, improving resident access to Cordale’s services, whilst revitalising Main Street, replacing the long-standing dilapidated and empty shops and transforming the physical appearance of the area.

The new office is expected to be opened in late 2018.

Margaret McCallion, chairperson of Cordale Housing Association, said: "The development of the new office is very important for Cordale Housing Association.

"It will improve access and the services we offer our tenants, establish a better working environment for staff and will regenerate the main through way in Renton.

"This development shows how far we have come since the development of our partnership with Caledonia Housing Association.

"As well as the building of a new office, Cordale and Caledonia plan to bring a significant number of new affordable homes to Renton and Alexandria in the next couple of years."
