Headway made on 69 homes at Slackbuie
December 16 2019
Robertson Partnership Homes and Caledonia Housing Association have progressed a £9.2m housing development in Slackbuie, Inverness, with installation of the first timber frames.
A total of 69 affordable houses and flats have been earmarked for the site, each generating its own sustainable energy via roof-mounted solar panels. A public art project for the community will also be created in consultation with Inverness High School.
James Freel, Managing director of Robertson Partnership Homes said: ““As the capital of the Highlands, Inverness has established itself as a modern and desirable location, recently being named the best city to live and work in the UK.”
Julie Cosgrove, chief executive of Caledonia Housing Association, said: "We are committed to bringing quality homes to support people who want to live in this new and steadily growing suburb of Inverness.
“These 69 modern, high quality and energy efficient properties will provide residents with warmer homes that have fewer carbon emissions and are cheaper to run. The mix of houses and flats will be available for mid-market rent, will provide social housing and will also offer the opportunity to buy on a shared equity basis.”
Residents are expected to move into their new homes, designed by Halliday Fraser Munro, from Christmas 2020.
