Dunedin starts work on new development in Edinburgh
Wheatley Group’s Dunedin Cranmore has started work on a total of 60 new flats in Edinburgh with funding help from Edinburgh City Council and Scottish Government.
The homes – 41 of which will be for social rent – are being built by Glasgow-based contractor and manufacturer, CCG (Scotland) Ltd.
Each development will be a mix of one and two-bedroom flats offering spacious, open-plan living environments.
The social rentals will be in Beaverbank Place, Bonnington, while the mid-market homes are in Morrison Crescent, Haymarket
David Fletcher, Wheatley Group Director of Development, said: “These modern, spacious energy-efficient developments will increase the supply of much-needed affordable homes in Edinburgh.”
CCG’s use of innovative construction methods will ensure the new homes will have an enhanced building fabric which will deliver improved levels of environmental performance and generate long-term savings for the future residents.
CCG Chairman and CEO, Alastair Wylie, said: “CCG’s commitment to providing quality, energy efficient homes is not set to slow down in 2019 and that is in part to do with the work we are doing with Wheatley Group and its member associations across the country.”
As part of the Wheatley Pledge, a scheme which means Wheatley contractors commit to doing more for people in Wheatley communities, CCG will also provide a series of community benefit initiatives during the work, including two new apprenticeships, eight work placements and support for community projects.
