TGDT secures funding for Affordable Housing feasibility study

Tomintoul & Glenlivet Development Trust received an early Christmas present this week with the confirmation of a £10,000 Rural Housing Fund grant towards feasibility work to establish the demand and need for affordable housing in Tomintoul. We’ll be working with Highland Small Communities Housing Trust in the new year to get detailed feedback on the types of houses and tenures required in our area.

Affordable housing was highlighted during the consultation on our Community Plan 2018 – 2022 and the availability of a suitable site, a willing partner and funding for site purchase mean the project is progressing well. We’ll be holding a series of meetings in the new year where this and other topics can be explored further.
