Transformational Regeneration Areas (TRAs)

We’re working in partnership with Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government to transform neighbourhoods across the city.

Transforming Communities: Glasgow (TC:G) is a strategic partnership which oversees the regeneration and development programme across Glasgow’s eight Transformational Regeneration Areas (TRAs).

TC:G provides new sustainable communities through new housing, community facilities and green space.  

Six of the TRAs have a Local Delivery Group, made up of residents, councillors, GHA and other partners. Local Delivery Groups will follow for East Govan/Ibrox and Red Road/Barmulloch.

GHA is playing a key role in the delivery of new housing in six of the eight TRAs.

The developments for the new housing was a result of major demolition work carried out by GHA in areas which saw a decline in demand and popularity, along with high investment and running costs.

Find out more about the TRAs below.


GHA’s £6million development opened in September 2013. The homes were a mix of 50 houses and 12 cottage flats. Six were built for wheelchair users.

Open days and meetings with the community were held in early 2016. Plans include looking at the future of some tenements and building more new homes.

The first stage was completed in December 2015 with 141 homes handed over to GHA tenants.

The £13.7million development included 11 homes built with wheelchair access.

The next stage will see hundreds of more new homes, a new school campus, student flats and shops, as well as a road bridge, a land bridge across the M8 and new green spaces.

North Toryglen 

A brownfield site next to King’s Park is being transformed at a cost of £9.3million.

The 100 new GHA homes included 64 houses, 36 flats with 10 built to wheelchair standard. The homes were handed to GHA tenants in September 2016. A further 60 homes were built for private sale by Cruden Group.

Future phases will run from 2017 to 2025 and could see up to 400 homes built.

The first phase of work in 2012 saw GHA build 93 flats and houses on the south side at a cost of £11.4milliion.

In 2015, two tenement blocks in Shawbridge Street were refurbished as 40 mid-market rent flats.

The second phase will see £4.7million spent by GHA on 47 modern and energy-efficient flats for social rent. Work is due to finish in early 2017.

A future phase will see 42 affordable homes developed by GHA’s sister company, Loretto Housing Association. Future plans for the area include housing for the private sector.

Red Road/Barmulloch

Community drop-in events have been held to gather feedback on what people want to see in the area.

Residents are being asked their views on housing, community facilities, leisure and shops, jobs and learning opportunities and how to keep Red Road’s history.

East Govan/Ibrox

Plans were announced in August 2016 for 152 new homes – 116 for social rent and 36 for mid-market rent.

The social rented homes will be for GHA, while Lowther Homes, our sister company, will manage and rent out the mid-market rent homes. Work is due to start in late 2017.
