Sector: Residential Completion date: January 2021

Working in partnership with Caledonia Housing Association, the 69 new build homes offer much-needed one and two-bedroom flats, in addition to the two, three, four and five-bedroom houses that are currently under construction on the wider development.

The wider neighbourhood development plan for Slackbuie also brings new commercial space to the area, providing opportunities for local businesses.

"We are delighted to be able to work in partnership with Robertson Partnership Homes and Highland Housing Alliance to provide a range of affordable housing options for this new and expanding community.

We are committed to bringing quality homes to support people who want to live in this new and steadily growing suburb of Inverness.

- Julie Cosgrove, Chief Executive, Caledonia Housing Association

Together, we will meet the growing demand for housing

This development will form part of a new neighbourhood, helping to meet the demand for one and two-bedroom flats. In partnership with Caledonia Housing Association, we will work together to provide high quality housing options to this growing neighbourhood.

Creating high quality and energy efficient homes

Through the use of solar panels and our high-quality timer frames, each home will be built to last whilst providing tenants with environmentally sustainable energy.

The houses and flats at Slackbuie will be mixed tenure including social rent and mid-market rent as well as some shared equity.

Our Slackbuie site and the local community

During the construction of this development, Slackbuie has had many links with the local community. The local high school has assisted with the design and planning of the Public Art feature with young people having enjoyed an insight into the industry through site visits and talks. We have hosted three secondary school activities working with a total of 42 pupils so far as well as four individuals participating in month long work placements.

Upon completion, Slackbuie will also have a pedestrianised public square that will provide the wider community with an area that they can use for events and gatherings in the near future.
