West Lothian Council completes more than 100 homes at Kirkhill in Broxburn
West Lothian Council has confirmed the completion of more than 100 homes at Kirkhill in Broxburn, one of the largest council housing sites in Scotland.
A total of 230 new homes are being built on the site: 92 one- and two-bedroom cottage flats, 105 two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom houses, and 33 one-, two- and three-bedroom accessible bungalows.
The new homes will contribute to West Lothian Council’s target of building 3,000 affordable homes by 2022.
Councillor George Paul, executive councillor for services to the community, visited 100th Kirkhill tenant Dianne McDonald last week.
He said: “We are very proud to be building more high quality, affordable homes to rent across West Lothian and we are delighted that Dianne - the 100th tenant - has now moved into their new council home at Kirkhill.
“These new homes will enhance the communities around them for generations to come and help meet the high demand for affordable housing in West Lothian.”
Ms McDonald added: “I love my new home at Kirkhill. It is a lovely home and a very nice development. The location is perfect as I work at Broxburn Academy so it is ideal for me getting to and from work and for my daughter, who attends the Academy, too.”
