Work continues on new council homes in West Lothian
Progress continues on work to turn a former council depot into high quality council homes in West Lothian.
The transformation of the Eagle Brae depot is gathering pace as work construction continues on the delivery of 29 new council homes.
CCG is constructing the units on behalf of West Lothian Council which include a mixture of one-bedroom cottage flats; two, three, four- and five-bedroom houses and two- and three-bedroom bungalows.
Work is anticipated to be complete by the end of Summer 2022 when council tenants will be able to take advantage of the new homes.
The homes onsite will contain a number of features designed to help tenants reduce their carbon footprint. This includes future provision for electric vehicle charging points and PPV solar panels to help reduce energy consumption.
Executive councillor for services for the community, George Paul was recently onsite with officers from the council’s Housing Service to oversee the latest steps being taken as the former depot site is transformed.
Councillor Paul said: “With the old depot surplus to requirements, it is fantastic to see the land being put to good use. Livingston has long been the most in-demand area of West Lothian for social housing. The range of homes being delivered here at Eagle Brae demonstrates the commitment to increasing the availability of affordable homes in the Livingston area. It has been good to be onsite once more to see good work being carried out by contractors and the council.”
CCG managing director, David Wylie, added: “I am delighted to see that Eagle Brae is progressing well. The project, alongside a further 29 homes that are also being created in Livingston, is bringing much-needed, highly energy-efficient homes to West Lothian and we look forward to welcoming the new residents this summer.”
