Plans for 25 new homes in Renton have been given the green light.

West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) has approved the proposals, submitted by Cordale Housing Association last week.

The development will see the creation of new affordable housing in the town.

Of the 25 homes set to be built at Dalquhurn, 15 will be two bed houses along with a further eight three beds and two four bed homes.

The new builds are designed to compliment the previous development on the former site of the industrial dye works.

Cordale Housing Association chair Margaret McCallion said: “We are delighted to receive planning consent to proceed with the development of these new homes. We opened our new office earlier this year which transformed the heart of Renton.

"It’s fantastic we are now providing new affordable housing and helping to revitalise Dalquhurn. It’s been a remarkable year for Cordale Housing Association”.

Julie Cosgrove, chief executive of Cordale's partner housing association Caledonia said: “The development of Dalquhurn is one of the commitments that Caledonia gave to Cordale and its tenants when we entered into our partnership. I am delighted to see that further new homes will be provided in the area and I am extremely pleased that our partnership has been able to achieve this. I look forward to continuing our partnership for the benefit of the community."

The developer now hopes the appointed contractor, Engie, will be able to start work on the site in August, with completion expected in the middle of next year.
