Dunbritton delivers again in Argyll and Bute

New homes for Dunbritton.

Posted In

Dunbritton Housing Association held a formal ceremony to mark the opening of its most recent development of new homes at Succoth on 1 May 2019.

After several years’ working with Argyll and Bute Council, the Scottish Government, TSL contractors, and the CAF Bank, this new development of affordable homes for rent was completed; and all 26 properties were let in September 2018.

The development was named Bruce Court, and this was chosen by children from the local primary school in Arrochar.

The formal opening ceremony was performed by Melanie Tonks, who has played an active part in the community in a range of roles for many years.

Melanie manages the day to day running of the Three Villages Cafe and Pit Stop Takeaway as well as the local post office, located within the cafe on behalf of the Arrochar and Tarbet Community Development Trust, of which she is a Director

William Clark, Chair of Dunbritton’s Board of Management, said: “The association is pleased, after a very long period of delays and difficulties were overcome, to be officially opening our latest development here at Bruce Court.

“Our strapline, ‘together we can’, is physically real when you stand here and look around you, and, together, we will continue to keep making it real.”

Allan Murphy, Dunbritton’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “A project like this would not have been possible without real joined-up thinking and partnership working and major financial inputs from a range of sources. I’d like to thank the Scottish Government, Argyll and Bute Council and the CAF Bank for their support throughout the project.

The event was well-attended by tenants and others involved in the project, and Councillor Gary Mulvaney, Depute Leader of Argyll and Bute Council, thanked Dunbritton for its contribution to developing sustainable communities across Argyll and Bute.
