The development, in the town’s East Lane, is on the site of a former Arnold Clark garage.

The homes are a mix of two and three-bedroom flats, with four wheelchair-accessible flats.

Frank McCafferty, Wheatley’s Group Director of Repairs and Assets, said: “We’re delighted to be working with our partners at JR Group and Renfrewshire Council on this development and we are looking forward to seeing these much-needed homes for social rent take shape.”

The contractor is the JR Group and the £9m project is being built with grant assistance of £5.8m from the Scottish Government.

Andrew Dallas, Projects Director for The JR Group, added: “The plans for this development reimagine this brownfield site into an attractive place to live, featuring much-needed energy efficient homes and we look forward to progressing this vision on behalf of our partners, Wheatley Group.”

The homes are expected to be ready in early 2025.
