Social landlord Melville Housing has been handed six affordable homes by Taylor Wimpey as part of a multi-million pound development of properties for rent at Kippielaw in Dalkeith.
Council Leader Owen Thompson (SNP), said: “Midlothian Council is dedicated to providing low-cost affordable housing and this development is another example of our commitment to increasing the supply of affordable housing in our communities. And as one of Scotland’s smallest local authorities, we were recently entered into a top housing award for our efforts in providing affordable housing. I’m delighted to visit these new units and see for myself what a great asset they are to the local community.”
A further 12 apartments due for completion by the end of this month.
