Scone affordable housing push meets reduced mobility requirements

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.

This is what happened when you go for lunch and don't log out. What was mentioned to be a friendly prank became some poor affordables only 'creative' window. Way to go, surely instagrammable area :)

These are actually nice looking homes. It looks like someone has actually figured out that houses can be appealing unlike the big house builders in Scotland who continually trot out the same mundane garbage.

#2 I agree, I like the positioning and proportions of these houses. Small, practical front gardens with areas of communal on-street car parking - looks Dutch. Better than the big housebuilders mundane estates.

It's a well chosen picture there, this bit looks ok but the wider site isn't quite up to the same standard (other publications have different images)
