New kitchens, heating systems and windows are part of the £14 million investment being made by the Hebridean Housing Partnership over the next four years.
This huge investment will be delivered through a framework contract which includes nine locally based contractors.
HHP’s Chair David Blaney said: “I am delighted to be able to confirm this major investment and I am particularly pleased that this will be delivered by local contractors.
“This not only benefits tenants but supports a large number of local jobs and greatly benefits the local economy and wider community.”
The HHP Board agreed the details of a package of works at their meeting on February 18th.
The planned works include:
689 heating systems
65 houses reroofed and
83 houses roughcast
This investment follows on from the £15m investment which has been delivered in 2011-2015 and brings the total spend to date by HHP on major improvements in tenants homes to £24.2m since 2006.
