Aberdeen council chiefs have completed a £13 million council housing scheme in the city.

The 99-home development at Smithfield features 42 three and four-bedroom semi-detached properties and 57 one and two-bedroom flats.

Within months, work at the nearby Manor Walk site will also be completed, providing a further 80 council houses.

Council co-leaders Jenny Laing and Douglas Lumsden visited the Smithfield site to mark the successful completion of the project.

Mrs Laing said: “This is an important milestone for Aberdeen City Council, with the ambitions for the Smithfield site realised.

“What was a vacant piece of land has been transformed to provide much-needed housing and is already thriving as a new addition to a well-established community.”

The Council is currently developing plans for the delivery of a further 2,000 new council homes after setting its 2018/19 budget priorities earlier in the year.

Mr Lumsden said: “Boosting the supply of council houses and affordable housing is a key priority and we are prepared to innovate as we move forward.

“Working in partnership will be essential to meeting our ambitious targets and we look forward to progress with the plans announced in the budget.”
