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.
