  • Easterhouse is a suburb of Glasgow, located approximately 6 miles (10 km) east of the city centre, partially built on land gained from the county of Lanarkshire as part of a boundary expansion of Glasgow prior to the Second World War. Building began in the mid-1950s by the then local authority, Glasgow Corporation. The goal was to provide better housing for the people of the East End living in sub-standard conditions. The area is on high ground north of the River Clyde and south of the River Kelvin and Campsie Fells. It was built to house over 50,000 people but as of the 2001 UK Census, its population was 26,495, of which 96.85% were born in Scotland. 172 people or 0.63% of this population were born outside Scotland, the lowest percentage in the country.In 2011, the population of Easterhouse decreased to 8,923 based on a narrower definition of the area and regeneration of housing which replaced tenements with houses. Neighbourhoods considered to be part of Easterhouse include Wellhouse, Easthall, Provanhall, , Lochend, Rogerfield and Commonhead. The nearby communities of Barlanark, Craigend, Cranhill, Garthamlock and Ruchazie were constructed during the same period using the same general building principles. (en)
