Landmark Housing Project Complete In Kilmartin

Construction News Image
Four new homes have been delivered in Kilmartin, marking Argyll Community Housing Association's first new build development in the village.

Scotland's oldest serving councillor, Mid Argyll representative Donnie MacMillan BEM (92) visited the site to officially open the properties.

The £650k-plus development, in terms of design and mix, is semi-detached/terraced and all properties are two bedroom. Funding for the development was a three-way partnership involving the Scottish Government, Argyll and Bute Council and ACHA.

MacLeod Construction of Lochgilphead completed the homes across a 12-month construction period.

Alastair MacGregor, ACHA's Chief Executive, commented: "ACHA is committed to meeting housing need in small villages in rural Argyll. It is absolutely vital that affordable housing for rent is available in villages like Kilmartin and this handover today follows on from similar projects in Tarbert, Connel, Arinagour and Inveraray.

"We are also on site in the neighbouring village of Cairnbaan, and we look forward to getting five homes completed there in March."

Councillor Donnie MacMillan added: "I am delighted with the progress ACHA has made over the years in building so many houses for so many housing needs, and I am really pleased to open these four new homes in Kilmartin today."
