A LOCHABER community has said it is pleased to see the completion of six new homes in the area.
The Highlands Small Communities Housing Trust (HSCHT) announced last Thursday January 19 that six new properties in Strontian have now been built alongside a serviced plot for a self-build home.
And now occupants of the new properties, situated beside the high school in Strontian, are gearing up to move in.
Sunart Community Council said: ‘Three of the properties are for social rent with Lochaber Housing Association, and the other three being for rent to buy. Sunart Community Council is also pleased to see that all of the properties have been allocated to people in need of housing in the local area.’
Kilchoan, Lochyside and Mallaig are now also set to benefit from ambitious development plans between HSCHT and the Lochaber Housing Association (LHA), which will see 40 new homes a year built in Lochaber.
In Kilchoan three new homes are now available for social rent, while Lochyside, Fort William, has benefited from 10 additional properties.
