Mears extends housing development presence in Scotland

Mears New Homes has signed a £2.8m contract with North Lanarkshire Council to build a scheme of 16 dwellings at Plains Village in Airdrie, Lanarkshire.

When finished, the scheme will consist of six different house types, including amenity bungalows, one and two bedroomed flat and houses and three and four bedroom houses.

The building is taking place on the site of a former primary school earmarked for development under the council’s Villages Project.

Steven Porch, operations director, said: “This is a great opportunity for Mears New Homes to work with North Lanarkshire Council and to demonstrate the diversity of our expertise.

“The team have a consistent approach to quality and customer satisfaction and will work alongside the NLC to deliver targeted community benefit programmes.

“We are holding a supply chain event later this month to promote our new home business and to increase supplier relationship in the area.”

The project sees small scale developments within the area and forms part of the authority’s house building programme that aims to deliver 5,00 new homes by 2035.
