Construction has started on 14 new homes at Jackson Street, Penicuik.

The council properties are being built on the former Jackson Street School site by Glasgow-based construction firm CCG. The development is to be finished next spring.

Council leader Owen Thompson (SNP) said: “We are delighted to be working with CCG on this latest building project for new homes in Penicuik. As one of the smallest local authorities in Scotland we have a fantastic record of building council houses.”
