Minister for Housing and Transport Opens Brand New Development in the Heart of Alexandria
Cruden Group: 5th June 2012
To celebrate one of Dunbritton Housing Association's recently completed developments Keith Brown MSP, Minister for Housing and Transport attended the opening ceremony at Leven Street, Alexandria.
Mr Brown, in his official role as Minister for Housing, unveiled a plaque along with Dunbritton Housing Association's Convenor John O'Connor to commemorate the official opening of the 30 much needed new homes which will be constructed by Cruden Building & Renewals Ltd.
During a tour of the development Mr Brown was able to see first-hand the changes that good quality affordable housing can make to people's lives. Mr Brown was also shown the valuable ‘wider role' community work which Dunbritton has supported in the area. An environmental project initiated by The Leven Group and assisted by Community Links Scotland transformed two un-used play spaces into beautiful landscaped areas, with materials and labour provided by the Argyll & Bute Employability Team and financial support from Cruden Building & Renewals as the contractors for the new housing.
Mr Brown also acknowledged the hard work, dedication and commitment that May Howie, Dunbritton Management Committee Member has shown since joining the Association as a founder member in 1989 and unveiled the Howie Court street sign, named in May's honour for her tireless efforts during the past 23 years, before presenting May with a bouquet of flowers.
Keith Brown, the Scottish Minister for Housing and Transport, said: "Investment in new, affordable housing such as this development by Dunbritton Housing Association will help boost our economy, through the direct impact it has on construction and jobs and by making more quality homes available. Last week, I was pleased to announce we had exceeded our target to deliver 6,000 affordable homes each year and it is thanks to the hard work of committee members like May, that communities can benefit from new homes.
"I am pleased to open these new homes, everyone in Scotland should live in safe and warm affordable homes that not only meet their needs, but support the development of sustainable communities."
John O'Connor, Convenor of Dunbritton Housing Association said: "In our 20th year I am delighted to see Dunbritton continue to provide good quality homes and help to build communities. In partnership with West Dunbartonshire Council, the Scottish Government, local community groups, and Cruden Builders we have created much needed affordable and accessible housing for local people. We are especially proud to see one of our long serving committee members, May Howie, being recognised for her unrelenting work in the community by the naming of Howie Court."
Morven Short, Director of Dunbritton Housing Association stated: "I am delighted that Dunbritton has added another development to its range of homes in Alexandria. This is a stunning development with a good mix of houses, flats and bungalows and it fits so well in to its surroundings".
Donna Robb, new tenant of the Leven Street Development advised: "To say I'm delighted with my new home would be an understatement. From the spacious interior, to the tranquil view of the River Leven, it really doesn't get any better! It's more than obvious a lot of care and attention went into the planning of these properties, in particular to the high standard materials used in the fitted kitchen, bathroom and doors."
