The partnership approach adopted by a 21-year-old Glasgow

housing association has been praised by Scottish housing minister Malcolm Chisholm.

Speaking while opening Springburn and Possilpark Housing

Association's latest development in Ardoch Street, Mr Chisholm said:

'The key to the successful regeneration of Possilpark and other

areas in Scotland lies in the development of genuine partnerships. The

25 homes that have been built here at a cost of£1.4m are the

result of a such partnership, involving the Housing Association, a

private developer - Wimpey Homes, Scottish Homes and the city


'Partnerships must involve not only all the appropriate

agencies, but importantly the local community. This way everyone is

able to participate and have a stake in the regeneration of their area.

'The housing association has done much over the last 21 years

to improve housing in Springburn, Huntershill and now Possilpark. Its

achievements are a tribute to the dedication and commitment of its staff and its voluntary committee members.'

-- The Springburn and Possilpark Housing Association is a community

based association and currently owns over 1000 homes. The

association has been keen to promote owner occupation in the area.
