Work is set to begin on over 700 new homes at a development near Glasgow.

Developers have officially broken ground at Cornhill Village in Hamilton where 781 private and social homes for rent will be built by Cala Homes (West), Barratt Homes West of Scotland and David Wilson Homes.

Homes within Cala’s development will include four and five-bedroom detached houses while Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes will offer a variety of three and four-bedroom homes.

Just minutes from Hamilton's town centre, Cornhill Village is less than 17 miles from Glasgow.

The site will also deliver a new primary link road between Strathaven Road and Meikle Earnock Road, a footpath network including cycle paths with connections to the local core path network.

Existing woodland will be kept and more plants will be added, as well as more landscaping, woodland walks and a children’s play area.

Before construction began on the new homes, a new roundabout was built on Strathaven Road providing primary access to the site.

Work is also beginning on a new spine road connecting Strathaven Road to Meikle Earnock Road and this is due to be completed later this year.

“Our new development in the sought-after town of Hamilton is set to be an exciting addition to the West of Scotland. Now that construction is underway, we look forward to launching off-plan this summer with showhomes to follow later this year.

“We will be offering a collection of high specification four- and five-bedroom homes with a variety of house types, to suit all buyers.”

Estelle Sykes, sales director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes West Scotland, added: “We are thrilled to be bringing brand new quality homes to Hamilton and to have commenced construction at Cornhill Village.

"Through close collaboration with the community, partners, and design teams, we’ve created an attractive and thoughtful development where residents can be proud to call home.

"We know there’s significant demand for new homes in the area, so we look forward to welcoming our first residents with the first completions expected later this year.”
