Perth development earns affordable homes accolade

MUIRTON Living in Perth has been crowned Affordable Housing Development of the Year at the Scottish Home Awards.

The site, which is being delivered by Urban Union, is the final phase of the redevelopment of the Muirton area in the north of the city. It features 203 affordable homes, with Muiton Living described as a ‘unique community that puts residents at the forefront’.

The development comprises a selection of one to four-bedroom homes, and sits within the catchment area of five local schools.

Urban Union MD Neil McKay said, We are extremely proud that Muirton Living has been chosen as this year’s Affordable Housing Development of the Year. From Muirton Living’s inception, we have put the needs of local residents at the heart of every decision, allowing us to ensure the delivery of homes that appropriately represent the needs of the community.

“The team at Urban Union have all worked so hard to bring Muirton Living to the area, so it’s fantastic to see the team be recognised with this incredible accolade.”

Stuart Bishop, architectural director at Barton Willmore added, “It’s great to see the Muirton Park scheme recognised in the Affordable Housing Development of the Year category. We are proud of the work we delivered, which involved architecture and town planning services, including landscape design and masterplanning.”
