North Lanarkshire Council is looking for a team to design 700 new homes across a range of local sites
The winner of the estimated £1.5 million contract will draw up plans for around 700 council homes spread across 30 sites within the North Lanarkshire region to the east of Glasgow.
Planned to complete in 2020, the project is part of a £160 million investment by the local authority which aims to deliver 1,800 new homes over the next ten years.
According to the brief: ‘This contract involves the establishment of a design team comprising a building and landscaping architect and structural/civil engineers for the design of between 16 and 30 sites at various locations throughout North Lanarkshire which will encompass up to 700 new-build homes.
‘The contract will also require planning permission to be obtained for each design. The 16 sites initially identified will consist of approximately 350 new build homes with a further 14 sites (approximately 350 units) being added once locations are identified.’
The 470km2 North Lanarkshire area is home to around 338,300 residents and has one of Scotland’s longest council house waiting lists with 12,000 applicants. The district’s main settlements are Cumbernauld, Coatbridge, Airdrie and Motherwell.
The local authority owns around 36,000 homes and is recognised as one of Scotland’s largest council landlords. Recently completed new housing schemes include 27 units at Cliffvale Road, Chryston and 14 new homes at Summerlee Street in Coatbridge (pictured).
The deadline for applications for the latest project is noon, 29 June.
