Gold star for city scheme

Have your say

A HOUSING development in the Capital which includes the city’s first new council homes for a generation has won a national award.

The Gracemount development won the Best Partnership in Affordable Housing Delivery category of this year’s Homes for Scotland Awards.

The first phase of the scheme includes 99 new homes, with 67 for social rent, 20 for mid-market rent and 12 for sale with shared equity. The project is a partnership between the city council and the Cruden Group.

Councillor Cammy Day, vice convener of housing, said: “It’s great news that the first development in our exciting 21st Century Homes programme has been recognised by our peers in the housing industry.

“This is a clear endorsement of the public and private sector working together to deliver new housing developments.”
