New homes replace ‘unattractive’ Arbroath flats

CCG (Scotland) Ltd has completed the build of 38 new homes for rent at Arbroath’s Emislaw Drive.

Carried out on behalf of Angus Council, the ‘transformative’ project sees the delivery of a mix of one, two and three-bedroom properties – including accommodation suitable for older ambulant tenants.

The local authority added that the build ‘breathes new life’ into the area, with it replacing ‘unattractive low demand’ flats and garages with a ‘much more pleasing’ pedestrian friendly environment.

Furthermore, it ‘complements’ the council’s investment in the nearby refurbished Timmergreens Primary School – as well as providing new safe active travel routes to the school, as well as a park and play area.

CCG director, John Baggley, said, “Emislaw Drive is the second development CCG has delivered as part of a strategic partnership with Angus Council. Over 50 homes have now been created and we are proud to have brought high-quality, highly energy-efficient affordable homes to Arbroath. On behalf of the CCG Group, I extend my best wishes to the residents as they settle in and my thanks to the council for their efforts over the last two years.”
