Forty-nine new homes will help local people in housing need following the completion of a project involving Persimmon North Scotland and Sanctuary Scotland.

The homes have been built on Persimmon’s Greenlaw Park development in Carnoustie and the mixture of affordable properties has now been transferred to Sanctuary Scotland.

Persimmon North Scotland’s managing director James MacKay and Lucy Conway from Sanctuary Scotland were joined on site by Angus Council’s deputy leader and housing spokesperson Councillor Kenny Braes, Provost Brian Boyd and Councillor David Cheape.

The trio were given a tour of the Greenlaw Park development – which features 195 homes in total and has streets named after former local elected members Helen Oswald, Peter Murphy and David Selfridge – and heard how the new homes are already benefitting families in need.

James MacKay, Persimmon North Scotland managing director, said: “It was great to welcome local representatives to Greenlaw Park to see the positive impact the new homes are having in Carnoustie. The development is good example of our successful partnership with Sanctuary Scotland, which is delivering much-needed affordable new homes for families across Scotland.

“As well as the 49 homes which have now been transferred to Sanctuary Scotland, we’re continuing to create more opportunities for local families to own their own home – delivering quality our customers can rely on, at a price they can afford.”

Gillian Lavety, Sanctuary’s development director – Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to see the completion of these new affordable homes for local people which have been delivered through successful partnership working for the benefit of the community.”

Councillor Kenny Braes, Angus Council deputy leader and housing spokesperson, added: “The 49 high quality affordable homes are going to change people’s lives for the better. This is a great example of partnership working.”
