New council homes to be built in Stirling
Stirling Council is to build ten new council homes in Balfron to meet the demand for socially rented properties in the area.
The one and two bedroom flats will be located on Main Street after the council bought a construction site which has lain partially developed for a number of years.
In addition to the flats, there will be two commercial units.
Stirling Council’s housing convenor Cllr Violet Weir said: “This is a great boost for Balfron. The new development will not only improve the overall look of the Main Street, but will also provide much needed, good quality accommodation for both residents and local small businesses. I look forward to them being completed and tenants moving in as soon as possible.”
The new properties will all be built to an excellent standard. They will be environmentally friendly and comfortable, with high levels of insulation to ensure they meet energy efficiency standards.
More than 100 new homes have been added to council stock since 2012.
