Residents of Ellerslie Estate in Yoker have hit out at a construction company for leaving a mess following the creation of new flats.

The Sanctuary Homes seven-storey development on Ellerslie Road was completed around three months ago by construction company CCG.

But residents claim nothing has been done regarding their numerous complaints in relation to the entrance of their estate, where wasteland with dirt, tyres and cones remain.

Trevor McGrath, resident and chairman of Ellerslie Homeowners Association, said: “We’re disappointed having to live amongst this, we want to live in a place that’s pleasant to look at where we can invite people in.”

Residents forked out their own cash and time over the last decade to grow and maintain shrubs and mature plants in green areas around the estate.

But while building work was in progress, one of these areas was bulldozed.

They claim the construction company failed to reinstate this to its original condition and left tractor marks still visible.

Felix McCoy, who lives on the estate, added: “It’s a complete and utter joke.”

Due to the construction of the new building, the residents’ visitor car parking spaces where also taken away as part of the planning permission.

After writing to managers of the company several times, they say they are ignored or given false promises.

In response, Calum Murray, director of CCG (Scotland) Ltd said: “Throughout the construction process, we sought to engage with the surrounding community as often as possible whilst also providing local employment opportunities, site tours for local schools and a financial donation to update the resident committee’s website.”

In addition, Lowther Homes finished building rented housing within the estate more than two years ago and has failed to maintain garden areas leaving them looking like “hayfields”.

Mr McGrath added: “We’re having to live in this state, they’ve just left it.”

Karen Durnian, managing director of Lowther Homes, said: “We’d like to apologise to residents for the time it’s taken to find the best way forward. We will now make sure the work is done as soon as possible.”
