Title: Forehill Affordable Housing & Childrens Care Unit
Client: South Ayrshire Council
Nineteen new socially affordable houses – designed to modern environmental standards making them warm and economical to run – have been built by Morris & Spottiswood in Forehill. A children’s residential unit, which matches the style of the new houses, has also been provided as part of the development.
The new homes are a mixture of one bedroom cottage flats, two and three bedroomed terraced and semi-detached houses and one detached home suitable for people with particular mobility requirements.
The children’s residential unit was built on Caledonia Road along with eight affordable family homes for rent, another seven homes are located in Glencairn Park and four more at Gavin Hamilton Court.
The new homes and the residential unit have been specially designed to complement the existing homes. Feedback from the local community was also taken on board in relation to parking facilities, green spaces and lanes.
