Mission Alignment

This investment aligns with the Bank’s place mission, to invest in places and regeneration to reduce inequalities and improve opportunities and outcomes for people and communities.

The Station Wynd site, immediately adjacent to Nitshill train station, is a brownfield site currently part of the Glasgow Vacant and Derelict Land register. The development will transform this derelict site to a modern housing development of desirable and liveable family homes built to a high design specifications.

The homes facilitated by the Bank’s loan are being developed under a development agreement between Strathcarron Developments Limited and Glasgow City Council, with the site part of the council’s Nitshill Regeneration Framework.

The Bank’s loan of £3million will be repaid by the developer from sales proceeds of the housing. The developer was unable to find finance from the high street banks or other private sector finance to support this development.

“These homes will increase access to affordable housing in the area, enabling first-time buyers in Nitshill to stay in their community.”
