A total of 35 new homes are to be constructed in Killearn, including 12 to be delivered for Rural Stirling Housing Association by Mactaggart & Mickel Contracts.
These new affordable homes will be built on the Blairessan site off Station Road in Killearn, Stirlingshire and will be ready for occupancy later this year.
This new partnership builds on Rural Stirling Housing Association’s success in providing new affordable homes in rural communities and is the first time that Mactaggart & Mickel have built properties in Killearn.
The affordable homes – a mix of apartments,cottages, semi-detached and terraced houses - will be part of a wider development of private housing by the fourth-generation, award-winning family housebuilder. Buchanan Views will consist of 23three-to-five bedroom homes from the company’s iconic Design Collection.
Jamie McLean, General Manager for Mactaggart & Mickel Contracts, said: “We are pleased to have secured this contract from Rural Stirling Housing Association and look forward to delivering attractive, energy efficient, affordable housing later this year.”
Margaret Vass, Chairperson of Rural Stirling Housing Association, said “We are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to be working with Mactaggart and MickelContracts. There is a real shortage of affordable housing in Killearn and these much needed, good quality new homes will allow us to help redress that shortage, providing more choice for local people who want to make Killearn their home”
The development is near open countryside with excellent links to Glasgow and Stirling.
