Fyne Homes Deliver New Housing in Tighnabruaich

FYNE HOMES DELIVER NEW HOUSING IN TIGHNABRUAICH

We have recently completed a new housing development of 20 energy efficient affordable homes in the village of Tighnabruaich.

The project (Kyles Court) has a mixture of 1 bedroom cottage flats, 2, 3, & 4 bedroom family houses and 2 specially adapted wheelchair friendly homes.

The development cost just over £4 Million and was delivered through funding partnerships with the Scottish Government, Argyll & Bute Council and our loan arrangement with Santander Bank.

Janet McAlister, Technical Services Director commented:

This has been a challenging project from site conditions to lockdown & COVID 19 restrictions but we are delighted to see its completion and the quality of the properties are a credit to the contractor – MacLeod Construction.

It was also lovely to engage with the local primary school with the children being invited on site visits (pre-COVID) and then having fun construction challenges using marshmallows and spaghetti.

The last competition held with the school was to choose a development name with Murray Sim being the winner with his suggestion of Kyles Court."

Janet further added:

"In addition to MacLeod Construction, I’d also like to thank the design team for all their hard work and especially Robert Baxter –Site Agent for his attention to detail. Robert himself was a pupil at Tighnabruaich Primary some 60 years ago.

Thanks also to the members of the local community who formed a Local Lettings Plan working group to assist Fyne Homes with recognising the communities needs when prioritising housing applicants.

We are sure these properties will be well received within the community and will help to meet housing need and demand within the village."
