ROSEANNA VISITS NEWHOUSE ROAD REGENERATION PROJECT

“SNP COMMITTED TO IMPROVING AND EXPANDING SCOTLAND’S STOCK OF
SOCIAL HOUSING”

The Scottish National Party’s Ms Roseanna Cunningham, SNP candidate for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire paid a visit to Newhouse Road, where Caledonian Housing’s £4 million upgrade has recently got underway.  

Speaking after her visit, Roseanna said:

“It really is fabulous to see this level of investment being put into regenerating the flats on Newhouse Road. 

“The community flat is a wonderful resource, not only allowing tenants to see how the inside of their flats might look once the project is completed but also acting as a hub for information and advice as well as playing host to a community history project and family fun days.

“While there is no doubt that decanting and scaffolding and noise and dust might be a real pain, the end result really will be worth it. 

“Caledonian Housing have worked well with tenants, engaging them in the process and ensuring that they are being kept informed and involved every step of the way.

“This is a major project and I am certain that the rejuvenation of the area will have benefits beyond the obvious and very desirable one of improved standards of housing. I believe that we will also see a significant reduction in anti-social behaviour and a new vibrancy to the community. 

“The SNP is committed to improving and expanding Scotland’s stock of social housing.  Our manifesto - published as I was visiting Newhouse Road - contains a pledge to invest over £3 billion over the course of the next parliament to deliver at least 50,000 new affordable houses, of which at least 35,000 will be houses for social rent.”
