MP opens Argyll Community Housing Association’s 30th new build home in Connel
Brendan O’Hara, MP for Argyll and Bute, has opened new Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) homes in the village of Connel on the outskirts of Oban.
The 10 new homes opened last week are the 30th to be completed by ACHA on the site in the last three years.
The new homes overlook Loch Etive and the Firth of Lorne and the iconic Connel bridge.
The development which was built by MacLeod Construction of Lochgilphead was funded to a value of £1.593 million with contributions from ACHA, the Scottish Government and Argyll and Bute Council.
Brendan O’Hara MP said: “Once again, I am delighted to see the progress in building more quality affordable homes across Argyll and Bute. This sends a strong message that Argyll and Bute is a great place to live, work and do business in and I am especially grateful to ACHA for leading on this. Thanks too to MacLeods for delivering this project and to all stakeholders for this successful collaboration.”
Alastair MacGregor, ACHA’s chief executive, added: “This opening today is not only special because it brings to Connel 10 more family homes but as a Connel boy to see this in my home village is beyond something else.”
The 10 new homes built by ACHA in Connel are part of the Association’s current on site development programme of 122 units across Argyll and Bute.
