Proposals to Build New Affordable Housing at Nithsdale Crescent, Bearsden – Engagement Event

Proposals are being put forward for the creation of an affordable housing development that has the potential to regenerate the Nithsdale Crescent area of Bearsden.

The Council wishes to demolish the properties at 8-28 and 30-50 Nithsdale Crescent to allow the creation of higher quality new-build accommodation that better meets the local housing need.

The draft proposals, which will see a substantial investment from the Council in the area, follows a 2017 feasibility study which considered four options for the redevelopment of the current flats, surrounding open spaces, and car parking areas in Council ownership.

The option deemed to promote the best long-term solution for the area was to demolish both existing blocks in order to provide a new build development across the entire site.

This has the potential to provide a mix of 26 new homes including large family homes with private gardens and smaller apartments. Some of the homes will be offered for sale under the Council’s Shared Equity Scheme. You will be able to find out more about our shared equity scheme at

The Council recently held an engagement event on the 12 August 2019 with local residents and other stakeholders to discuss the proposals.  Banners providing detail on proposals as well as architects drawings of the new build affordable homes, were displayed at the event, and these are attached to this consultation page.  Additionally you will also find a consultation questionnaire asking for your views on the proposals.  We would be grateful if you could complete the questionnaire as your opinions are important to us. The closing date is Wednesday 28 August 2019.
