Local jobs for local people at Troon affordable housing project
The local Ayrshire community has benefited from more than just new affordable homes, thanks to the ‘added value’ aspect of the current development programme being progressed by Ayrshire Housing in partnership with Cruden Building West.
Four new jobs have been created, including a four-year joinery apprenticeship and a trainee site manager as part of a £7 million affordable housing development at Troon.
The development which is currently in construction will deliver 52 new affordable homes for the client as part a 600 plus new homes expansion masterplan for the northeast of the town which includes both private and affordable housing.
Jim Whiston, director of Ayrshire Housing, said: “As well as providing much needed, quality affordable housing which will make a big difference in the quality of life for residents, it is also fantastic to see ‘community benefit’ in action – offering apprenticeships and work placement opportunities to local people.”
Gordon Lee, director of Cruden Building West, added: “At Cruden Group, we build communities, not just homes and are therefore fully committed to providing meaningful employment and training initiatives as part of our support for the local community through this exciting new housing development in Troon.”
