Res­i­dents move into homes

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

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.

New ten­ants John Shields and Les­ley Pater­son with daugh­ter Lau­rie.
