Islanders will have the chance to see the plans for an ambitious new £2million housing development in Millport.
North Ayrshire Council will build 12 amenity bungalows for older people at the Copeland Crescent development.
The plans will be on show at Garrison House from 1pm to 4.30pm on Wednesday, October 31.
Housing officers and architects Anderson, Bell and Christie will be on hand to present the plans and answer any questions.
The new development will help to address the increased need for housing for older people on the Island.
It will also be the first new-build council homes development specifically for older people and will showcase the innovations and designs that will feature in future projects.
The council has received funding from the Scottish Government for the development and the design specification follows the government's vision for greener, affordable housing.
In addition to increasing the number of suitable homes for older people in Millport, the new 12 unit development will be:
- Designed to the highest standards
- More sustainable with lower fuel and running costs (including triple glazing, air source heat pumps and good insulation)
- Equipped to make life easier for older people (level access at entrance, wet floor showers, low cost heating)
As well as ensuring that the new homes are tailored to the needs of older people, the high quality design will also make sure that the houses will be fit for letting in the long term.
