Construction News Image
A new housing development in Todlaw, Duns, has been officially completed with the handover of the final phase of homes.

This last stage of the project saw the completion of another 27 affordable energy efficient homes at Millar Court, Station Crescent and Station Drive - bringing the total number of new homes to 87.

Berwickshire Housing Association's Todlaw homes include a diverse mix of shared equity, wheelchair bungalows, respite bungalows, general needs and supported accommodation. They have been developed in partnership with Scottish Borders Council and the Scottish Government and contribute to the More Homes Better Homes new housing delivery.

Hart Builders (Edinburgh) Ltd delivered the final phase of 11 flats and 16 houses. These include eight three-bedroom houses, eight two-bedroom houses and 11 one-bedroom flats – one of which is fully accessible.


All the homes are designed with level entrance paths and wider internal doors making them accessible for wheelchair users to visit and all have energy efficient gas heating which meets the 'Gold Standard' for energy performance.

All houses have PV panels and those within curtilage parking have ducts for future installation of car charging points.

Included in this latest phase is an area of meadowlands ground where BHA is creating a community garden for the households in the area.

Angela Taylor, BHA's Properties Director said: "BHA is proud to have completed another 27 much needed affordable homes which people can enjoy living in. They have been built to a high quality and sit within an established community in Duns and which BHA will further enhance with the community garden."

Andy Mallice, Managing Director of Hart Builders added: "Hart Builders is delighted to have completed this development, working in partnership with Berwickshire Housing Association, to build 27 new homes. This final phase provides a mix of 11 flats and 16 houses, each designed with accessibility in mind with wider internal doors and ground floor flats featuring level access showers.

"Hart Builders, as part of the Cruden Group, ensures that all developments support the local community, and we were particularly pleased on this development to support businesses in the area by choosing to work with local contractors."
