WSHA Makes Dreams a Reality for Ayrshire Tenants

Earls GreenThe first residents have moved in to a new affordable housing development in South Ayrshire and they are already feeling the benefits of the move.

Earls Green in Troon is a partnership between West of Scotland Housing Association (WSHA) and Stewart Milne Homes with the affordable housing being funded by the Scottish Government and WSHA.  On completion of phase 1 of the development, it will feature 52 new homes for social rent including a range of house types suitable for individuals, families and those with restricted mobility.

Shannon Green who lives with her young son in a 2 bedroom property, said: “This is my first home and it is more than I could ever dreamed of. The house is lovely and the big rooms give me and my little boy plenty of space. It is great for my son to have the safety of playing in his own garden.  It is a great community and we love it here.”

Another new tenant, Julia Chalmers who lives in one of the wheelchair adapted properties, added: “My previous home had steps which meant I couldn’t get out much and sometimes felt like a prisoner. My new home is great as it has ramp access which gives me the freedom to come and go as I please. I love gardening and can’t wait to make use of my garden in the summer.” For further information please read our press release.
