The 51 council houses

From the Highland Council web pages:

'The Highland Council is delighted that it has been successful with its bid for £1.275 million funding to the Scottish Government to support the construction of 51 new Council houses.

The housing units are earmarked to be built on Council-owned or Highland Housing Alliance sites - at Caol (8 units); Dingwall North (10 units); Invergordon (12 units); Corsee, Nairn ( 9 units); and Scotsburn Road, Tain (12 Units).

The new housing will be mainstream two and three bed properties with the exception of those at Nairn, which will be designed for older people or people with other health needs. All the new properties will be comparable to the new energy efficient homes recently developed by the Highland Housing Alliance at Kildary.'

  1. This level of support amounts to £25,000 per house .The Councils web site shows where the balance is coming from giving a total build cost of £114500 per house. I would have doubts on this estimate for the type of houses planned-and certainly doubts over the other funding sources.What for example will the professional fees be (circa 10%) Just wait and I would anticipate further 'Press releases'
