Tenants have now moved into Symington’s first affordable housing development which was created by West of Scotland Housing Association (WSHA) in conjunction with the contracts division of MacTaggart & Mickel.
For some of the new residents, including John Muir, the homes have been life-changing. John, who lives in a wheelchair adapted property, commented: “I am delighted with my new home and now smile in my home which I never did previously. I wasn’t able to use my wheelchair in my old house which made life very difficult whereas my new home has been adapted to meet my needs. It is a great community and I now have the freedom to pop up to the shop which makes a big difference to my life.”
The £4.5 million development, part funded by the Scottish Government in partnership with South Ayrshire Council, was completed at the end of 2018 and features 34 homes as part of a wider new-build development. It also includes a 3,000 sq. ft. Co-operative retail store for the benefit of the local community. You can read more here.
