Work has started on Ayrshire Housing’s latest housing development. 22 flats and houses are set to transform a key site on the approach to Ayr’s town centre.
The £2.5 million scheme has been designed by John Gilbert Architects to achieve the Scottish Government’s silver energy efficiency standard.
Ayrshire Housing’s chair Rhonda Leith said “I’m delighted that Provost Helen Moonie is launching this exciting development. As always, we would like to thank South Ayrshire Council for their continued support for our work. Their practical assistance has complemented that of the Scottish Government to make this project possible”.
Provost Moonie said “It’s great to see Ayrshire Housing despite all the financial challenges maintaining its commitment to high quality sustainable housing.” Provost Moonie was joined by pupils of nearby Newton Primary School at the launch.
The site is on King Street and Limonds Wynd. The first step for the contractor Ashleigh Building was to demolish a redundant former school building. The main building works are now well underway and will be complete by May 2016.
