Dalmarnock lies between the River Clyde to the south and east and Parkhead to the north. It is less than 3 miles from Glasgow City Centre.
The area has a local train station with a service frequency of four trains per hour westbound & eastbound to Glasgow - with a five minute journey time to the city centre - and Motherwell, Hamilton and beyond. There are also many regular bus services taking you to local shopping areas in Rutherglen, Parkhead and the city centre.
There are several schools within the Dalmarnock catchment area including Dalmarnock Primary School, Sacred Heart Primary School and St Anne’s Primary. St Mungo’s Academy is also located nearby.
Local amenities include the Legacy Hub which provides activities for both the young and elderly residents of Dalmarnock. There is Nursery, a medical practice, a dentist and a pharmacy.
Dalmarnock is one mile away from the Parkhead Forge shopping centre where there is also a multiplex cinema.
Dalmarnock was one of the venues for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. This brought three major projects into the neighbourhood – the Athletes Village, the National Indoor Arena and the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome and the East End Regeneration Route.
Since we purchased Dalmarnock we have reduced the number of long-term void properties from over 50 to zero. In order to support the process of improvement in Dalmarnock we introduced the Dalmarnock Rewards in 2006. Every tenant in Dalmarnock ‘earns’ £25 each three month period when they have not owed any money to the Association, have not missed appointments for pre-arranged visits by contractors and have not indulged in any anti-social behaviour. To earn the full amount tenants must be tenants at the start of the year and at the end of the year. Anyone moving into Dalmarnock during the year can only qualify for part of the Reward.
The Association is about to embark on a window replacement programme in Dalmarnock and is committed to further investment.
