Springfield Properties delivers 37 affordable homes in Elgin
Springfield handed over 21 affordable homes to Moray Council at The Range, on the southern outskirts of Elgin. The two, three and four bedroom homes are well-located close to a number of schools, shops and a medical centre.
An additional 16 homes were completed and handed over to Hanover (Scotland) Housing Association at Stonecross Hill, also in Elgin. This was delivered in partnership with the Scottish Government. The development consists of homes, ranging from one-bedroom cottage style flats to three and four-bedroom semi-detached houses.
The homes built in each development are highly energy efficient which keeps running costs low for residents.
Springfield Partnerships, the affordable division of the company, is building homes across Scotland to support the Scottish Government’s pledge to deliver 50,000 new affordable homes by 2021.
Springfield Partnerships Managing Director, Tom Leggeat, said:
“We have a close working relationship with both Moray Council and Hanover Scotland, and I’m really pleased to have worked with them to deliver a further 37 affordable homes that help address Moray’s affordable housing shortage. These projects are a prime example of how partnership working is delivering high quality, energy efficient homes that are a welcome addition to the supply of affordable housing across Scotland.”
Adam Curry, director of Organisational Services at Hanover Scotland, said:
“Moray is a major focus for Hanover Scotland and we are proud to have worked with Springfield Properties and Moray Council to deliver high-quality social housing at Stonecross Hill.”
“Having welcomed Councillors Leadbitter and Laing to the site whilst under construction, we have been very grateful for their support for this and our other developments in Elgin.”
Chair of Moray Council’s Communities Committee, Cllr Louise Laing, said the new homes were a welcome addition. She said:
“There’s a particular shortage of affordable housing in Elgin, so these will make a big difference to many households on our waiting list.”
