February 15 2019
Perth & Kinross Council are to lead a new affordable housing drive in the village of Scone after agreeing to construct 65 homes on the site of the former Glebe Primary School.
To be built by CCG the properties will include a mix of terraced houses and cottage flats, some of which will be specially adapted for wheelchair users and the mobility impaired.
Councillor Peter Barrett, commented: "This development is one of the biggest the Council has brought forward under our house-building programme, which has delivered over 300 news homes since 2011.
"It will provide a variety of affordable social housing in an area where it is much needed and will include an element of housing that has been designed for people with disabilities.”
Preparatory works are expected to begin imminently with construction commencing in summer 2019, with completion penciled in for late the following year.
