Edinburgh sees first new council homes built in a generation

Good news from Edinburgh:

The keys to the first council home to be built in Edinburgh in more than 30 years are set to be officially handed over to a new tenant. [They have now been.]

Council housing leader Councillor Paul Edie [Liberal Democrat] will present the keys to Lynsey Carmichael, who has moved to one of 99 houses and flats built at Gracemount.

The development is part of City of Edinburgh Council’s 21st Century Homes programme, which will see 1300 mixed tenure homes constructed for sale and rent around the capital…

Cllr Edie said: “I’m delighted that this administration has delivered the first new council homes in Edinburgh for a generation. These are really exciting times in the capital as our new council homes are going to be built across the city…

“This project also demonstrates our commitment to tackling the desperate affordable housing shortage in Edinburgh, Everyone knows more needs to be done and it’s important the public and private sector work in partnership on projects like this.”

* Mark Pack is Party President and Co-leader of the party. He is editor of Liberal Democrat Newswire.
