Keys handover marks affordable housing boost in Pitlochry

CALEDONIA Housing Association is marking a boost for affordable housing in Pitlochry after the keys for 12 new flats were handed over to tenants.

The development at Elm Court, off Atholl Road, comprises two three-storey buildings boasting a total of 12 two-bedroom flats for affordable rent. All 12 are now occupied.

Mrs Sasara, a new resident at Elm Court along with her husband and daughter, said, “Moving into this flat will be life changing for us. We currently live in staff accommodation with shared facilities, so having our own home is just so amazing.”

Andrew Kilpatrick, director of assets at Caledonia Housing Association, said, “We are really pleased to be able to increase the availability of affordable housing in Pitlochry. This will no doubt be welcomed by the large number of hospitality staff in the area, as well as families looking to move into new, quality accommodation.

“We received many enquiries about our Pitlochry flats and we have been really pleased at how quickly we have been able to house our new tenants.”
