Eildon Housing Association and Hart Builders are really pleased that work has now started on site at Coopersknowe in Galashiels.
The new development will create 69 high quality affordable new homes for people in the Borders who desperately need them. There will be a mixture of bungalows, 2/3 bedroom homes/maisonettes and flats catering for a wide cross section of our community. As housing demand continues to be high, developing this site means we are another step closer to closing the gap.
The development will complete in phases with a final completion planned for the Summer of 2022.
Nile Istephan commented “We are really looking forward to working with Hart Builders again on a new development that will bring more affordable high-quality energy efficient homes to the Borders. However, this investment offers much more than that. After a difficult year for everyone, continued construction brings local jobs and skills to the area. Giving our economy a much needed boost.”
Gill Henry, Business Development Director of Hart Builders, said: “The commencement of our latest site at Coopersknowe means we now have 207 new homes under construction for Eildon Housing Association across the Scottish Borders, which is testament to our long standing and successful partnering relationship. We look forward to continuing to provide vital employment and training roles in the Borders during the course of the project.”
