Thursday 14 June 2018

Tenant Derek Ritchie, Shaun Smith Albyn Housing Vice-Chair, and David Cameron Davall Developments Ltd
We have taken handover of a new development of affordable homes in Aviemore, delivering progress on our commitment to bring 750 new homes to the Highlands by 2020.

The new development, Sluggan Drive, is made up of 14 modern homes including ten available for social rent and four available for mid-market rent through Highland Residential.

The new development represents a total investment of £1.9million including £1million support from the Scottish Government. Davall Developments Ltd began construction on the site in May 2017, with the handover to ourselves now complete.

Calum Macaulay, our Chief Executive, said: “Bringing new, good quality homes to the people of the Highlands is at the top of our agenda, and these new units in Aviemore will hopefully relieve some of the demand we are experiencing in this area.

“As a housing association, we are ambitious to maintain our status as an affordable housing developer of scale. We’ll do this by building quality, affordable, energy efficient homes for rent and for sale in the communities that need them most, which ultimately, will contribute not only to the region’s housing demand, but the continued sustainability of the region and its distinct communities as a whole.”

We have over 3,000 properties for rent and we have sold several hundred as part of the LIFT shared equity scheme across the Highlands.
