“Camusterrach Housing: all access homes for Applecross residents”
The project is for three two-bedroom houses for affordable rent to Applecross residents who are struggling to manage in their current residence. Housing allocation would prioritize older residents who have care needs; residents with disabilities; and vulnerable adults.
The houses will be located adjacent to the Applecross GP Surgery. The land is being purchased from NHS Highlands via the Community Asset Transfer process. The Scottish Land Fund awarded £11,900 for the purchase of this land. Land acquisition is in progress and expected November 2019.
ACC have engaged the Highlands Small Communities Housing Trust (HSCHT) to manage the project development on behalf of ACC. HSCHT have extensive experience in rural, affordable housing developments.
