157 new affordable homes for Cunninghame Housing Association
Ashleigh Building is currently delivering 157 affordable homes for Cunninghame Housing Association across two separate sites in Annan.
The development on the high street in Annan consists of 27 affordable homes, with the first phase completed and handed over earlier this year.
Kevin Stewart MSP attended the opening ceremony in February, and Ashleigh Building is currently on-site refurbishing the five remaining units.
The second site, based at Hallmeadow in Annan, will see 130 new affordable homes built. Construction on these homes began on July 6.
Ashleigh Building has said that with all its projects, it seeks to involve and enhance communities, working closely with local schools, community groups and sports associations.
Cunninghame was recently contacted by Hazel Thompson from Kate’s Kitchen, who was looking for a site cabin that could be up-cycled and used by their volunteer gardeners for their innovative garden project. Kate’s Kitchen is a charity organisation based in Annan, who operate a café for people within the community.
Ashleigh Building forwarded the request onto Ashleigh’s area director David Roan who informed their local teams and involved supply chain partners Jarvie Plant Hire and J&J Currie Ltd in sourcing a cabin that could be donated and transported to site.
The firm has said it is looking forward to seeing how this cabin will be transformed by Kate’s Kitchen’s Volunteers in the upcoming months.
