NEW images have been released to show how a new £35m housing development in Port Glasgow will look.

River Clyde Homes was recently given the green light to build 224 homes at the former St Stephen’s High School site between Kilmacolm Road and Southfield Avenue.

Jillian Moffat, chair of the RCH board, said: “We are very pleased that this significant development of much needed new homes in Port Glasgow has been given the green light.

"This is a landmark in our ambitious new-build programme."

A total of 170 flats and 54 houses for social rent will be built by Cruden Building.

Allan Callaghan, the managing director of Cruden, said: "These high-quality homes will be built to silver standard energy efficiency levels, providing residents with warmer homes that have fewer carbon emissions and are cheaper to run.

"Throughout this build, we will provide a wide range of benefits for the local community - including employment opportunities, schools’ initiatives and site-based work experience.”
