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:
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.
