Ten­ants wanted for new af­ford­able homes at Ulva Ferry

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

ULVA Ferry is seek­ing new fam­i­lies to live in the area, help­ing to se­cure the long-term sus­tain­abil­ity of this cor­ner of north-west Mull.

There will be two- and three-bed­room houses avail­able to rent from this sum­mer and ap­pli­ca­tions are now in­vited from in­ter­ested fam­i­lies. Of­fer­ing af­ford­able rents, low heat­ing bills and se­cure ten­an­cies, these new homes are be­ing built next to Ulva Pri­mary School. The houses will be of­fered via an ap­pli­ca­tion process, with pri­or­ity given to fam­i­lies with chil­dren to en­rol in the school.

A joint ven­ture be­tween the Ulva School Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion (USCA) and Mull and Iona Com­mu­nity Trust (MICT), the Ulva Ferry hous­ing project is on track for com­ple­tion this spring.

This in­no­va­tive com­mu­nity project is funded by Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil, the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment, Quaker Hous­ing Trust, the Trust­house Char­i­ta­ble Foun­da­tion, USCA and many gen­er­ous do­na­tions from lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike.

Lo­cal de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer He­len Mac­Don­ald, who has man­aged the project since April 2014, said: ‘ We are de­lighted to fi­nally be of­fer­ing these houses for rent. We are grate­ful for all the sup­port we have re­ceived from com­mu­nity mem­bers and our fun­ders, and it is just fan­tas­tic to of­fer two fam­i­lies the opportunity to make these new houses their homes.’

Any­one in­ter­ested in rent­ing one of the prop­er­ties should con­tact He­len on 01680 812 900 or by email to hmac­don­ald@mict.co.uk. The clos­ing date for ap­pli­ca­tions is Fri­day March 24.
