BARRATT Developments has revealed plans to create 1420 homes at 14 new sites across Scotland.

The firm said the new will sites will “underpin” over 300 extra jobs and provide a huge boost to local sub-contractors and tradesmen as well as the Scottish economy as a whole.

The sites include developments in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Haddington, Linwood, Strathaven and Newmachar.

Douglas McLeod, regional director for Barratt Developments in Scotland, said, “We have seen demand for new homes across Scotland remain high and our new sites will provide more choice for buyers looking to purchase in some of Scotland’s most sought after residential locations.

“it’s also good news for the Scottish economy not just in terms of supporting local construction jobs, but also through the generation of local revenue from new residents spending in local shops and on local services.

“We know the positive social and economic impacts that our developments can make and we’ll be working closely with all the communities in which we’re building, to make sure we maximise those impacts as we progress.”
