PROPOSALS to build 283 new council homes in Dyce have taken a step forward.
First Endeavour LLP is set to deliver the housing units at Wellheads Road in Dyce after entering an agreement with Aberdeen City Council. The site was marketed at a Developers’ Day held by the council last year to encourage the private sector to come forward with housing provision.
Work on the £30 million Wellheads Road development is expected to start in autumn. A First Endeavour LLP spokesperson said, “First Endeavour are delighted to be working with Aberdeen City Council to be building much-needed council homes in Dyce. These homes will be built to the highest standards to meet the needs of council tenants, including those with a disability.”
Council co-leader councillor Jenny Laing said, “We are delighted to announce that we are partnering with First Endeavour LLP to provide nearly 300 council homes. As a council we are committed to finding innovative ways to deliver both services and new infrastructure, including an additional 2,000 council homes. We are working with landowners and developers to provide much-needed local authority housing.”
Fellow council co-leader councillor Douglas Lumsden added, “Our new-build programme is gathering momentum with a number of projects under way or about to start. This isn’t just about building housing – it’s about building communities and opportunities and ensuring that our city continues to prosper in an inclusive way.”
