Lovell will build 443 new council homes for social rent as part of the West Lothian’s house-building programme. These include 195 homes at sites in Wester Inch, Bathgate; Redhouse West, Blackburn and in Pumpherston. These three schemes, with a combined value of £17.5m, will provide a mix of cottage flats, houses and bungalows and are set to be completed in December 2016.
Lovell will also build 230 new homes in an £18.1m development at Kirkhill, Broxburn, which is due for completion by April 2017. This will also be a mix of cottage flats, houses and bungalows.
In addition, Lovell has just started work on an 18-home redevelopment of the former Broxburn Primary School, a scheme is set to be finished in summer 2015.
Lovell regional director Alan Taylor said: “This is our fourth year of working with West Lothian Council to help provide high-quality new council homes for people in the area.
“We are delighted to have been selected for these latest projects which will make a real difference in West Lothian, both for the local community and the local economy, delivering extensive job and training opportunities alongside modern council homes built to the latest standards.”
