Arbroath Demondale area regeneration programme completed

After 12 years of transformation, the last phase of the regeneration of the Demondale area in Arbroath has been finalised with the completion of 4 new properties in Noran Avenue.

Elected members and Council’s officials met together at Noran Avenue today to discuss the completion of the Demondale regeneration and to view the new properties

The new properties were completed by Bancon Construction and have replaced older, less attractive stock with new, energy-efficient homes that better meet the needs of current waiting list applicants. Two of the recently constructed properties are suitable for households with medical needs, which will help deliver our Local Housing Strategy target of having 20% of new-build affordable housing suitable for particular needs.

Housing spokesperson Cllr Lois Speed said:

It is good to see tenants settling in to their new accommodation and surroundings at Noran Avenue and to see how the regeneration programme has improved the quality of life for local residents and transformed the area into a place that people can be proud to call home. We want to make sure people have great places to live – that’s more than just the bricks and mortar – it’s about providing people with a safe and stable environment to help set the foundation for better educational attainment, and training and employment opportunities. It’s about helping to improve health and wellbeing, combating poverty, and helping boost the local economy through investment.

The Demondale regeneration project has also improved the quality of amenity space in the area, by creating better parking and landscape layouts which complement the new homes. This environment brings new opportunities for the local people such as taking forward initiatives as part of the Council’s sustainable food strategy, which is a high priority for the Arbroath Locality Partnership.

Gavin Currie, managing director of Bancon Construction, said:

We worked closely with Angus Council on the design and build of four bespoke, energy efficient houses at Noran Avenue in Arbroath, which includes accessible properties that have been fully adapted to accommodate wheelchairs. We were extremely pleased to be awarded the contract by Angus Council, which reflects our experience in constructing high quality buildings for residential and healthcare use.
