The council's Head of Planning and Economic Development, Pauline Elliott, said: "I am delighted that the committee gave approval for these homes which will provide new high quality accommodation suitable for modern, family living.

"This will transform this area of Cambuslang and I am sure it will be welcomed by local residents."

Executive Director of Housing and Technical Resources, Daniel Lowe, also said: "These homes are an important step in the regeneration of East Whitlawburn.

"It will be another key milestone for the council as we continue to work towards our target of 1000 additional homes across South Lanarkshire."
