Work underway on 64 homes in Earlston

Cruden Building has commenced delivery of 64 affordable homes in the Scottish Borders town of Earlston.

The £12.5m development on the site of the former High School, since relocated to an edge-of-town site, has been designed by Aitken Turnbull Architects on behalf of Eildon Housing Association.

Comprising a mix of detached homes, apartments and cottage flats the build will employ air source heat pumps and a drainage pond to improve the environment around the Turrford Burn.

Councillor David Parker said: “With soaring energy costs at the forefront of everyone’s minds, it's more important than ever to ensure we are building homes that are low carbon, healthy and affordable. This new housing development also provides a variety of house types to suit differing needs and environmentally friendly features.”

Upgraded road access will route the primary entrance through East Green with a secondary route connecting to the Station Road Industrial Estate.

The site neighbours the planned Earlston Community Campus.

'Affordable' in Scotland is a byword for no imagination.
