Building due to start in early 2017
At today’s (Tuesday 11 October) East Lothian Council Cabinet meeting, the recent award of a £2.2m contract to Hart Builders for new housing at Russell Walk, North Berwick was noted by members.
A total of 18 houses and flats will be built as part of the council’s new affordable housing programme. Eleven of the properties will be 3-bedroom houses; two 2-bedroomed houses, four 2-bedroom flats and a wheelchair accessible 2-bedroom bungalow.
Council Leader, Cllr Willie Innes, said:
“Expanding the provision of affordable housing across East Lothian is a priority for the council. We work with a range of partners, including private house developers, to secure sites for building. I am particularly pleased that this contract was won by a local contractor ensuring continued employment stability for the area.”
Preliminary works are already underway with construction expected to start on site in early 2017.
