Work fin­ished on new coun­cil houses

West Lothian Courier - - News -

Work has been com­pleted to de­liver 41 homes at West Loth­ian Coun­cil’s new-build hous­ing site in Winch­burgh.

The project was un­der­taken as part of the new Winch­burgh Core De­vel­op­ment Area (CDA).

The site is be­ing built in tan­dem with an­other af­ford­able hous­ing (RSL) de­vel­op­ment by the Wheat­ley Group.

Be­tween the two de­vel­op­ments, there will be 96 new rented homes de­liv­ered through land that was sup­plied by the lead de­vel­oper, Winch­burgh De­vel­op­ments Ltd, via the Coun­cil’s af­ford­able hous­ing pol­icy. The new homes were con­structed by McTag­gart Con­struc­tion on be­half of the coun­cil.

In to­tal, West Loth­ian Coun­cil is build­ing over 1000 new coun­cil homes across all ward ar­eas as part of its’new-build af­ford­able hous­ing pro­gramme.

This makes the lo­cal au­thor­ity one of Scot­land’s largest providers of new build, coun­cil prop­er­ties.

Ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil­lor for ser­vices for the com­mu­nity, Ge­orge Paul said: “Winch­burgh is one of West Loth­ian’s core de­vel­op­ment ar­eas and is ex­tremely pop­u­lar with peo­ple look­ing to move into the vil­lage.”
