Claire Lindsay rolled out the welcome mat to her beautiful new home at Rennie Street in Kilmarnock for visitors from the Council.
Her home is part of the Council’s affordable housing development, which was built on the site of the former St Columba’s Primary and includes two two-bedroom specially adapted homes for wheelchair users; four two bedroom family homes and four three bedroom family homes.
Councillor Douglas Reid, Leader of the Council was joined by Councillor Alan Brown, Spokesperson for Strategic Planning, Management and Resources, who presented Claire with flowers to mark the occasion, and local member Councillor Jim Buchanan. He said: “Rennie Street, which is situated at the heart of a lovely conservation area and just minutes away from local schools and the town centre, makes these homes an ideal location for our residents.
“It was brilliant to visit Claire and to see how well she has settled into her new home with her children. These homes are life changing for local people but they are also helping to regenerate sites where buildings have previously stood.”
Built in partnership with McTaggart Construction and supported by funding from the Scottish Government; work commenced on site in April 2014 and the homes were completed in January 2015.
