Work has now started on leveling the site for the 53 'affordable' residences approved on 29th February by the planning authority. It is a joint venture between applicant Queensberry Properties Ltd, who will construct the houses, and the Eildon Housing Association (EHA) which will manage 49 of the units and rent them out at “social housing rent levels”.
