Hamiltonhill Overview

The Hamiltonhill Development is the Association’s contribution to the Glasgow Canal Regeneration Partnership, which is a partnership between Glasgow City Council, Scottish Canals and other local agencies to deliver the Canal Action Plan, a new vision of the north west of Glasgow.  

Hamiltonhill is one of a number of neighbourhoods along the canal corridor which have been identified for new housing, from Sighthill, through Dundashill, Cowlairs and Ruchill Hospital up to Maryhill Locks.

The Hamiltonhill Development will see around 670 new homes built, providing a mix of low-rise flats and terraced housing, with over 350 for sale and 320 for social rent spread through the neighbourhood.

These new homes range in size from one-bedroom flats to larger family houses with up to four bedrooms.  Three new local parks will be created, bringing attractive open, green spaces and play parks to the area.

At this time, there are no plans to provide other tenures, such as Shared Equity or Mid-Market Rent but we do hope to eventually replace the existing shops with a couple of new retail units and a potential community room.

The regeneration of the area will be delivered over a 10 year period. The overall development proposals can be downloaded at the bottom of the page. A full timeline of the various project works contracts is provided here.

Before house building could commence, the Association created a drainage link to the canal and grouted all the old mine-workings which exist below the new housing sites. Details of works completed can be found here.  [See here for more details]

The housing will be provided in 4 separate phases, each of which will take around 2-3 years to complete.  Phase 1 is due to start in Autumn 2022 [See here for more details].  Future phases will follow on after this.

The new parks and open spaces will be carried out under a separate works contract which has started in August 2022. We expect this to be complete in Summer 2023.  [See here for more details]
