New affordable homes set for Monifieth
In the latest part of Angus Council’s determination to make the local housing market as accessible as possible for home seekers, 22 affordable homes will be built at Victoria Grange in Monifieth.
Taylor Wimpey East Scotland is constructing the 12 two-bedroomed homes and 10 three-bedroomed homes in partnership with Angus Council as part of the local authority’s new supply shared equity scheme. Work is expected to be complete in summer 2021.
The 22 homes form the final tranche of affordable housing on the development, which includes a range of two-bedroomed mid-terrace and semi-detached houses, as well as three-bedroomed terraced and semi-detached homes across four locations, including three Angus Housing Association sites. This development will form an integral part of the new neighbourhood at Victoria Grange in Monifieth.
Taylor Wimpey has designed and created an affordable housing range that has allowed its team to work closely with the council and its housing association partners to create affordable homes with a mix of tenures. On completion, this project will have delivered 84 affordable homes for Angus residents.
Angus Council’s communities convener, Cllr Mark Salmond, said: “We are delighted to be delivering new properties in partnership with Taylor Wimpey that will be made available through Angus Council’s new supply shared equity scheme in the summer of 2021.
“Low Cost Home Ownership is a crucial component in our commitment to increase the supply of affordable housing in Angus and will supplement the social housing already delivered on this site. We will help to sustain our local communities by providing a range of routes into home ownership for those people on more modest incomes.”
Pauline Mills, land and planning director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, said: “Reaching the conclusion of this agreement for Victoria Grange marks another milestone on the journey towards completing the new community that’s growing at this established development in Monifieth.
“We’ll continue to work closely with Angus Council in order to complete the final 22 affordable homes by summer next year, in turn allowing the local community to reap the benefits of our long-term investment in the area.”
Applications for this scheme are not being accepted yet, but should be in early 2021, with the properties due for completion by around August 2021 (subject to delay).
