An annex of Glasgow's former Bellahouston Academy that houses a derelict gymnasium and swimming pool has been given the green light to be transformed into 36 affordable flats.

The social housing development will be carried out by AS Homes (Scotland), working in partnership with Home Group, and is due to be completed in winter 2023.

Graeme Todd of DM Hall, who oversaw the sale, said: “The Bellahouston Academy site has been transformed by our client, Rasul Group from a dilapidated former high school into a thriving business centre.

Paul Kelly, Managing Director of AS Homes (Scotland) said: “We are delighted to be acting in a development partnership arrangement with Home Group to provide further, and much needed, social housing.”
