The main route into Campbeltown is looking much brighter after a housing face-lift worth almost £400,000.

A joint project between private home owners and Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) has seen 18 properties at Kinloch Road/Burnbank Place, contained in three blocks, receive roof renewals, external wall insulation, cavity wall extraction and associated works.

Alastair MacGregor, chief executive of ACHA, which owns 11 of the properties, told the Courier that the value of the contract is £397,134.85, excluding VAT.

‘Argyll First councillor, Donald Kelly, said: ‘I would like to congratulate ACHA, council officers and the owners and occupiers of this building for coming together and agreeing a way forward.

‘The improvement is stunning and adds to the work already carried out at the other end of Kinloch Road.’

Mr MacGregor said: ‘Our plans are about more than bricks and mortar.  The association’s investment plans of £24.5million will support jobs, apprentices and the supply chain in Argyll and Bute.’
