The site was gifted to the Association by the SIC for the provision of 27 one-bedroom flats, with the ground floor properties designed as accessible homes that will meet the differing and changing needs of tenants as they experience life events.

The Association recently appointed DITT Construction Ltd as principal contractor for this project with construction due to start in April 2018 and it is anticipated work will be complete in the spring of 2020.

"I was very impressed to find the Hjaltland workman there, much sooner than I anticipated. What your colleague has done is marvellous! The clients are delighted and I think that what he has achieved has much exceeded their expectations. The handrail is actually a lovely bit of work and really quite attractive!"

"We are very happy with our new kitchen, I felt that I should email to make comment on the quality of the work of the two joiners and the chap that fitted the tiles. All three gentlemen have done outstanding work, as well as being extremely courteous, they worked in a clean and tidy manner. I would appreciate it if you would pass on our thanks for their excellent work."
