Barratt to deliver 40 affordable homes

Glye 1

BARRATT Homes has revealed plans to deliver 40 affordable apartments at a new development in the west of Edinburgh, worth almost £5 million.

Britain’s biggest housebuilder is delivering the apartments at its popular Barratt @ The Gyle development, which launched in October. The properties, which will be due for completion in October 2016 will be delivered to People for Places.

The units form part of Barratt Homes’ commitment to The City of Edinburgh Council to deliver 25% affordable homes and have been finished to the same high standards as the company’s private units.

Mansoor Ali, development director at Barratt Homes in the East Scotland, said, “Barratt Homes is passionate about delivering affordable homes. Throughout the East of Scotland we are committed to providing 25% affordable units at our developments. Our pledge at The Gyle, follows a significant milestone for Barratt as we have now delivered 332 affordable units in the capital with a further 260 units under construction.”

The announcement follows Barratt’s recent delivery of 16 affordable units, at its City Haven development in Newhaven, to Port of Leith Housing Association worth over £2 million.
