Fantastic new Chirnside development completed at Dominies Way and Dominies Road

We hosted an Open Afternoon event on Tuesday 19 March 2024 to showcase our latest major affordable housing development in Chirnside – Dominies Way and Dominies Road.

The new development consists of 57 high quality, sustainable and affordable homes including 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom houses and cottage flats. All houses and flats benefit from air source heating systems and are energy efficiency “B” SAP rating. All have private gardens with mix of driveway and non-allocated parking.

Our Chief Executive Nile Istephan said, “As well as regenerating this area and creating jobs and income for the Borders economy, this development is helping to address the acute housing need in our region. There is a high housing need in Scotland as a whole, but particularly in the Scottish Borders. For this development alone we had on average, 30 applications per property.”

“Hosting open day events like this helps demonstrate the quality of our new sustainable development, built by Springfield Properties. The total cost was £9.8M including Scottish Government Grant of £4.8 M and private finance of £5M.”

“Our Chirnside homes have brought a huge boost to this local area and is part of our strategy to invest £137 million in new homes for the Borders economy between now and 2027.”

Springfield Managing Director for Affordable Housing, Tom Leggeat, added,

“We are delighted to have worked with Eildon Housing Association to deliver high quality, energy efficient affordable homes in the Scottish borders. There is a well-documented shortage of affordable housing in Scotland and projects like this demonstrate the positive impact housing can have in an area, not just for the people who will be calling this development home, but the wider area.”
