£4m housing project breathes new life into Govan

27 Sep 2010

A derelict site, once home to a Post Office sorting office, has been given a new lease of life with the official opening of a £4million housing development.

Deputy First Minister and Govan MSP Nicola Sturgeon opened the development in Govan's Pearce Street.

It is yet another sign of the new life that is being breathed back into the area through the Central Govan Action plan.

The site, developed by Bield Housing Association, is on the corner of Pearce Street and Pearce Street Lane.

It stood as an unoccupied eyesore for many years, but will now provide much needed homes in the area.

The site was purchased in October 2007 and demolition of the sorting office followed early in 2008.

Now, the development is being officially unveiled.
