INVERCLYDE Council hopes to move forward with its plan to transform the rundown Clune Park housing estate in Port Glasgow this year.
The area around Robert Street is included in a new five-year housing blueprint for the district, with between 100 and 120 properties proposed.
A first phase of development would involve land currently occupied by the former Clune Park school and church and the community centre.
A strategy report by officials states: “During 2023 it is the council’s intention to develop an updated vision and masterplan for the site.
“This will then lead to the appointment of a register social landlord as a development partner to take the project forward through the Strategic Housing Investment Plan in future years.”
It continues: “At this point it is proposed that project proceed in two phases, phase one being the redevelopment of the school, church and resource centre site and phase two being the main Clune Park crescent comprising the north side of Robert Street, Maxwell Street, Clune Park Street, Wallace Street, Bruce Street and Caledonia Street.”
The investment plan indicates completion of 20 units by 2025/26, a further 20 the next year and another 30 by 2027/28.
