ACHA To Build New Homes in Bonawe

ACHA To Build New Homes in Bonawe

2nd April 2013 (http://www.acha.co.uk/press/archive13.html#zzr)

Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) is to build two family homes for rent in the village of Bonawe on the north side of Loch Etive.  The homes will be built on a site owned by the Association between Ardchattan Primary School and the settlement of Kenmore Cottages.  The Association has been able to fund the development as a result of a successful application to Argyll and Bute Council’s Rural Housing Development Fund.  This funding of £156,000 will be supported by £127,000 from the Association.

Alastair MacGregor, ACHA’s Chief Executive commented “It is vital that small rural communities like Bonawe have affordable housing to help people stay or to return to.  I am delighted that between Argyll and Bute Council and ACHA our joint funding allows this initiative to go ahead.”

He further added “I hope that these additional houses, along with the 16 that ACHA own at Kenmore Cottages, provide opportunities for young families to remain in Bonawe and support the local Primary School”.

Councillor Roddy McCuish, Council Depute Leader and lead Councillor for Oban, Lorn and the Isles commented “This shows a clear commitment not just to build much needed affordable homes in our towns   but in our rural areas as well.  Two houses in Bonawe, and the soon to be completed houses in Dalmally, are a huge step to sustaining our local communities.”

The Association plans to put the project on site in the late summer and it will last for a year
