New Year, new homes for Peebles
Eildon has obtained planning permission for revised proposals for Tweedbridge Court in Peebles.
The Association expressed its disappointment when its initial plans to deliver 40 new flats within two four-storey blocks were rejected by the Scottish Government last year.
Fresh plans were developed with comments and feedback from the local community, with the final design of 22 new homes providing much needed high quality affordable housing for the Borders.
Eildon said it will be looking at more sustainable building methods for this development and hope to use modular construction. This means that each home is built off-site and arrives almost complete just needing to be lifted into position ready for final connections. This reduces the on-site construction period whilst creating energy-efficient greener homes for the future.
Building work should start in the spring of this year and complete by summer 2021.
