Work progresses on build of 29 West Lothian homes

CONSTRUCTION is continuing on a West Lothian Council project to create 29 new council homes at the site of the former Eagle Brae depot in Livingston.

CCG is constructing the properties on behalf of the local authority, which are a mixture of one-bedroom cottage flats; two, three, four and fife-bedroom houses; and two and three-bedroom bungalows.

The council said work is anticipated to be complete by the end of summer, with all properties containing a number of features designed to help tenants reduce their carbon footprint – including provision for electric vehicle charging points and PPV solar panels.

CCG MD, David Wylie, said, “I am delighted to see that Eagle Brae is progressing well. The project, alongside a further 29 homes that are also being created in Livingston, is bringing much-needed, highly energy-efficient homes to West Lothian and we look forward to welcoming the new residents this summer.”

Councillor George Paul, executive councillor for services for the community at West Lothian Council, added, “With the old depot surplus to requirements, it is fantastic to see the land being put to good use. Livingston has long been the most in demand area of West Lothian for social housing. The range of homes being delivered here at Eagle Brae demonstrates the commitment to increasing the availability of affordable homes in the Livingston area. It has been good to be onsite once more to the see good work being carried out by contractors and the council.”
