Local contractor, MacLeod Construction, has been awarded a nine-month contract.

Councillor Anne Horn, elected member for Kintyre and the Islands, welcomed the news and commented: “I am delighted to hear that work is to start on the Argyll Community Housing Association project in Tarbert. The project has taken some time to be realised and I thank ACHA Officers for their efforts to bring the development together to provide much needed family homes in the village”

Alastair MacGregor, ACHA’s chief executive, added: “It is great to get this much needed housing project on site. It had taken longer than we had hoped due to title issues and Covid-19 but we are there now.

“This development is part of ACHA’s ongoing strategy to meet housing need in smaller communities in Argyll. It will add 4 new homes to go alongside completed new builds in Dalmally, Kilmartin, Cairnbaan, Bonawe, Inveraray and Coll. I look forward to seeing the completed development in 9 months’ time.”
