New homes for Gracemount
People are moving into the new homes at Gracemount. The homes are being built by Cruden Homes (East) Ltd and they will be completed in two phases.
The first phase consisting of 99 new homes, (67 for social rent, 20 mid-market rent and 12 shared equity) will be completed by the end of summer 2012. The first homes for social rent and mid-market rent were transferred to the Council in November 2011. Transfers will continue on a block by block basis until the construction is completed. Homes for rent will be advertised online and in the Key to Choice paper.
