Work to begin on 49 affordable new homes in Livingston
Housebuilder Cruden is set to start work on a mix of 49 affordable properties in Livingston on behalf of Link Group.
The £8.7 million development will see energy-efficient new homes built on a previously disused 1.2-hectare, brownfield site in Craigshill.
The modern development will provide a range of sustainable flats, built across three blocks, which will be three and four storeys high. The one and two-bedroom homes will provide residents with high quality accommodation for social rental.
Located at Sydney Street, the development is close to a number of amenities in the heart of Craigshill, including shops, health centres and schools. The new homes also provide a fantastic range of on-site facilities including attractive green space, electric vehicle charging points, bike storage and on-site parking.
Work will start this Autumn and is expected to be completed in Summer 2025.
Fraser Lynes, managing director of Cruden Homes, said: “We are pleased to continue our successful relationship with Link as work gets underway at Sydney Street. This exciting development will transform a previously empty site to bring quality, new homes to the local area.
“Craigshill is a strong location with plenty of amenities nearby to cater to the everyday needs of residents. These new homes will make a great addition to the surrounding community, providing attractive and sustainable living space at a time when it is needed most.”
Colin Culross, group commercial director of Link Group, said: “Link is delighted to continue its partnership with Cruden Homes to deliver much needed affordable housing at Sydney Street. The new homes will be energy efficient delivering zero emissions heating systems which assists with our sustainability journey towards net zero, a key focus for Link.”
