Eildon Housing Association are delighted that, following appeal, the reporter appointed by the Scottish Government has granted planning permission for the development of a major affordable housing site at Coopersknowe in Galashiels.
This means that Eildon Housing Association, working with Hart Builders, will now take forward exciting plans for the creation of 69 new high quality, sustainable and affordable homes on this long derelict site. We hope to start work shortly to deliver plans for a mix of family houses, maisonettes, bungalows and flats. Six of the bungalows will be fully wheelchair accessible.
As well as regenerating this site and creating jobs and income for the Borders economy, this development will help to address acute affordable housing need in the area. The project is due for completion in the Spring of 2022.
