Community Housing Project
With funding from the Scottish Land Fund and the Rural Housing Fund, we are undertaking a feasibility study with Highland Small Communities Housing Trust and Sam Foster Architects to look at an area of land that’s currently for sale for a potential housing project. Between 6 and 12 houses could be developed on the site with a range of tenures to meet local need, identified in our housing needs survey in 2018. Following the feasibility study, we will apply to the Land Fund to purchase the plot and the Rural Housing Fund for the construction of new homes.
Our first consultation took place on 5th April to gather views from the community.
During our feasibility study, we had two community consultation days to gather people’s views and priorities for the project, led by Sam Foster Architects. The design team then came up with some suggested housing and site plans. The final designs will be put together by the contractor undertaking the build and the feedback from the community will form part of the project brief.
