Eildon Housing are delighted to have been granted planning permission to continue their partnership with Buckholm Ltd. to deliver a further 69 homes at High Buckholm corner in Galashiels.
The first phase of the development consists of eleven family homes and will be completed in November 2021, with the second phase commencing later in 2021. The whole site will be completed by the Summer 2023.
All 80 homes are being built by the Peebles based contractor, Brash Construction. The affordable homes are being built to high standards and will benefit from air source heat pumps which is part of commitment to reducing our carbon footprint.
The 80 new homes at High Buckholm form a key part of Eildon’s development programme to deliver a record-breaking expansion of housing and care services for our communities in the Scottish Borders. This is all part of our strategy to invest in excess of £120 million in the Borders economy bringing much needed jobs, regeneration and 750 affordable new homes.
