    is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the new project in Bellshill, we’re
    excited to kick-start the scheme, especially as the town plays host to ENGIE’s
    regional offices.

    “We strongly believe that
    by using a local workforce, we can engage the local community and offer
    employment and training opportunities, in addition to working with our local
    partners to identify groups that would benefit from ENGIE’s support.

    “We’re keen to be working
    in partnership with Clyde Valley Housing Association, and to have the
    opportunity to transform the disused space into energy-efficient homes which
    will benefit the local community.”

    Allan Murray, chairperson
    of CVHA said, “We are pleased to be delivering these 24 properties in
    partnership with ENGIE. There is strong demand for properties across North
    Lanarkshire and in particular within Bellshill and this development will go
