The latest phase of North Lanarkshire Council's project reached another landmark with the official opening of new homes at Millerston.

The completion of the Coshneuk Road development includes 11 amenity bungalows built on a former horticultural nursery.

The site was developed by contractor Ogilvie on behalf of the council, with the first residents moving into their new homes earlier this year.

All the properties are energy efficient and designed to be easily adaptable for tenants with disabilities.

North Lanarkshire Provost Jim Robertson, who officially opened the project, said: "The completion of this development underlines our firm commitment to providing first-class housing as part of our new-build programme.

"It is exciting to see the properties finished and tenants enjoying life in their new surroundings."

The homes are part of the council's £150m Building for the Future programme that will see 1000 new rental homes completed by 2020.

"The programme not only provides warm, safe and eco-friendly homes but also helps to support the construction industry and provide employment. All the spacious properties are built to the highest standards and include quality kitchens and bathrooms. "

The council has secured a funding contribution of £25,000 to £30,000 per unit from the Scottish Government for all of its new-build developments to date, a total of £11m.
