Green Light For New Affordable Housing Development in MontroseNeil Hardie
Angus Council has received planning approval to build 10 new affordable Council houses for rent in Montrose.
Situated on land previously used by the Rosehill Resource Centre, this new project in Coronation Way will be another valuable addition to social rented accommodation in Montrose. This project is partly funded by the Scottish Government.
Communities Convener, Cllr Mark Salmond said: “I am delighted we have secured planning permission to build 10 high-quality affordable homes at Coronation Avenue. This new development will increase the stock of council housing in the area at a time when the demand for affordable homes continues to be high.”
The site, which will comprise of a mix of one, two and three-bedroom properties, will have its own access from Forties Road. Not only will these new spacious homes provide families with safe, secure tenancies, they will be low-cost to heat and run, thanks to high levels of energy efficiency built in to the design.
The development will fit in to its surroundings by incorporating sympathetic design features such as part brick boundary facings, and wildflower meadows along the roadside. Existing trees on the site will be retained where possible, with additional native species being planted too.
