Demolition To Clear Dingwall Site For New Housing Development

Construction News Image
A new housing development in Dingwall has moved a step closer as demolition works are set to begin on Meiklefield Road.

Central Demolition have set up on site and are carrying out pre demolition works to odd numbered properties from 1 to 23.

Making a special appearance on site to strike the first blow was Janet MacLean, who has lived in the flats since 1977. She is looking forward to moving back into one of the new homes when they are completed.

Janet said: "I have nice neighbours at Fingal Road, but I have lived in Meiklefield Road for over 43 years and I can’t wait to move back as that is where my heart belongs. I am so happy to get the opportunity to move into the new flat which will be modern and easier to look after."

Accompanying her as she took the first blow was her granddaughter Megan, Councillor Margaret Paterson, Housing Manager Rory MacLeod, Housing Options Officer Faye Dyer, and Site Manager Rab Blyth.

Councillor Paterson said: "It is an end of an era, there was always a warm welcome in Meiklefield. The people lived, loved and laughed here and will do again soon."

The demolition work is estimated to take 12 weeks, and the contractor will do all they can to minimise disruption in the area.
