Residents move into homes
RESIDENTS have moved into their new homes in the latest multi-millionpound Angus Council transformation of unloved local housing.
The £2 million project at Viewmount in Forfar has seen unpopular multistorey flats replaced with 11 new semi-detached homes in a scheme community group leaders hope will also bring some new faces on board with their initiative.
The homes include secure gardens and a new parking area for 21 vehicles, and have been built using council funds and a £649,000 grant from the Scottish Government’s Affordable Housing Supply Programme.
Four of the properties are suitable for householders with disabilities and all of the homes have solar panels, as well as high levels of insulation and ventilation.
