New homes for Mayfield

FORTY extra affordable homes are being added to a Mayfield development.

Melville Housing Association has been granted more than £1 million to extend the Langlaw Road site to 133 properties, its largest project.

Melville secured the extra cash with a successful bid to the Scottish Government’s new Innovation and Investment Fund.

Andrew Noble, chief executive of Melville Housing, said: “Not only will it provide much-needed new homes, it will also help sustain local construction jobs, providing a real boost to the local economy.”
