Project Information

This new housing development provides 21 units of affordable social housing, utilising regeneration funding to address the current lack of suitable housing available to vulnerable and homeless people. The development, located within Tillicoultry, provides energy efficient and low maintenance dwellings delivering long-term savings for both the council and the tenants.
The mix of house types meets local needs; increasing the level of social rented provision and provides access to amenity housing for the identified aging population.

The site layout is designed to form a single courtyard with all dwellings facing onto this new public space. The development feels secure and private, in keeping with the type of housing proposed for the site. Garden spaces are provided for all properties with the private space for the amenity houses being limited in area to reduce maintenance for the tenants. The houses provide a range of accommodation types and sizes including; amenity and general needs with properties ranging from one bedroom amenity bungalows to two bedroom cottage flats.

Clackmannanshire Council and Kingdom Housing Associated collaborated during this project.

Community artwork is being incorporated in consultation with the local community and schools
