ACHA delivers more homes in rural Argyll
Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) has built two homes for affordable rent in the village of Tayvallich on the coast of Mid Argyll.
The two three bedroom homes were built as part of ACHA’s strategy to build homes for rent in small rural communities in Argyll which has been ongoing for the past three years.
The project was funded in a three way partnership between ACHA, the Scottish Government and Argyll and Bute Council.
The official opening was carried out by Councillor Rory Colville, Chairman of Argyll & Bute Council’s Mid Argyll, Kintyre and Islay Area Committee. During his speech, Councillor Colville stressed the absolute importance of building affordable homes to sustain the population and communities in rural Argyll.
Alastair MacGregor, ACHA’s Chief Executive commented: “Two affordable homes in Tayvallich are as vital as forty in Oban. They meet a proportionate need in a small community in rural Argyll and will add to the other properties we already have in the village”.
And he added: “ACHA is committed to building in rural Argyll on the basis of the needs identified and are pleased to have the support of both the Scottish Government and Argyll and Bute Council in delivering that”.
