New affordable homes are to be constructed in Killearn as part of a new partnership between Rural Stirling Housing Association and Mactaggart & Mickel Contracts.

A total of 35 new homes will be built on the Blairessan site off Station Road, including 12 affordable homes to be delivered for Rural Stirling Housing Association.

The new partnership builds on Rural Stirling Housing Association’s success in providing new affordable homes in rural communities and is the first time that Mactaggart & Mickel has built properties in Killearn.

Due to be ready for occupancy later this year, the affordable homes – a mix of apartments, cottages, semi-detached and terraced houses - will be part of a wider development of private housing by the housebuilder.

Buchanan Views will consist of 23 three-to-five bedroom homes from the company’s Design Collection.

Jamie McLean, general manager for Mactaggart & Mickel Contracts, said: “We are pleased to have secured this contract from Rural Stirling Housing Association and look forward to delivering attractive, energy efficient, affordable housing later this year.”

Margaret Vass, chairperson of Rural Stirling Housing Association, said “We are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to be working with Mactaggart and Mickel Contracts. There is a real shortage of affordable housing in Killearn and these much needed, good quality new homes will allow us to help redress that shortage, providing more choice for local people who want to make Killearn their home.”
