Images have been revealed that show what the new Council homes will look like in Johnstone Castle.
It’s part of the regeneration of the area that will feature a mix of mainly two and three bedroom homes and own-door flats, as well as two specially designed bungalows for tenants with mobility requirements.

The regeneration project will also cater for larger families, with four semi-detached homes which have four bedrooms and the next phase of work will see vacant properties at Cedar Avenue, Tower Road and Elm Drive taken down to make way for the new energy-efficient homes.
Reigart Contracts Limited is currently clearing the flats at Elm Drive which were built in 1960.

Andy Steel, SNP councillor for Johnstone South and Elderslie, said: “This is a welcome step forward for Johnstone and Johnstone Castle & I think it will become the template for how these kind of developments will be done in future, with a mix of housing for all parts of our community.
“I look forward to seeing a new Elm Drive taking shape in the coming months.”
Cllr Jacqueline Cameron, who also represents the area, added: “I welcome the regeneration project which will be a real boost to a community who are already proud of their area and will include adapted housing for wheelchair users and people with mobility issues.”
Council Officers are based in Johnstone Castle Community Centre on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings if tenants or residents have any questions about the ongoing regeneration work in the area. More plans and images are available for viewing.
