The new affordable housing venture to replace the former Largs school buildings in Flatt Road has been hailed by a Largs Labour councillor.
Cllr. Gallagher said: “I am delighted this has happened. I have been pushing for affordable housing in Largs ever since I was elected 12 years ago
“The new land is freeing up the space and 122 houses will go a long way to answering our housing needs – our area has been one of the most pressurised housing needs in North Ayrshire.
“The housing department are to be congratulated for their visionary housing plan.
“The £20m that has been spent on the project by the council is the best £20m spent in North Ayrshire in the last 20 years.”
The proposed development will include 22 supported accommodation houses and a 28-unit sheltered housing complex.
In addition, the council plans to develop a sustainable district heating scheme to provide affordable heating for all of the homes on the site, and an adult outdoor gym at the site.
