Eildon takes top national award for latest new Selkirk development
Eildon Housing Association recognised at Scottish Home Awards.
Eildon Housing Association’s latest development at High Street/Chapel Street in Selkirk has been recognised as the Best Small Affordable Housing Development of the Year at the recent Scottish Home Awards.
Nile Istephan, Chief Executive of Eildon Housing Association, said: “We are particularly proud of this new development and our equally deserving new scheme at Craigpark, Galashiels, both of which were finalists in this competition.
“We are absolutely delighted to have won this award as we know we were up against stiff competition this year in this category.”
“This award continues a long line of success at national awards over recent years and is the second year in succession that we have achieved this award. This reinforces the value that Eildon brings to Borders communities with the investment we are able to make, working in partnership with Scottish Borders Council and the Scottish Government.”
This new development provides 10 much-needed, high quality one and two-bedroomed homes. Its creative design ensures that this challenging site, in a sensitive town centre location, has been developed to both regenerate the local area and also provide high-quality accommodation.
