Work Begins on New Housing in Riverside

Wednesday 1st March, 2017


Stirling Council have now begun to build housing on the former Riverside swimming pool site.

The James Street development will consist of four 1 bedroom and four 2 bedroom cottage flats in two blocks, designed and built by Stirling Council for mainstream tenancies. All ground floor properties will be wheelchair accessible and all properties will benefit from off street parking.

Built to the latest standards with an ‘A’ rating for energy efficiency, the completed flats will benefit from solar photovoltaic panels and battery storage. The buildings will be completed by Christmas 2017 and will provide much needed social housing within the Riverside area.

Stirling Council’s Housing Portfolio Holder Cllr Violet Weir said: “Riverside is a very popular area with a high demand and I welcome this development to add to the already completed bungalows in Edward Avenue.”
