Angus MacDonald, MSP for Falkirk East has welcomed today’s announcement that the Scottish Government will plough £1,260,000 into the building of 42 homes for rent at Parkhill Drive, Maddiston.
Welcoming the announcement, Angus MacDonald MSP said:
“This is good news all round. In addition to helping to relieve Falkirk Council’s housing waiting list today's announcement is a shot in the arm for Scotland's hard-pressed house building sector.
“The provision of social rented housing remains the highest priority of the Scottish Government and this latest move demonstrates how targeted capital investment can give our economy a real boost - a central plank of the Scottish Government's new Government Economic Strategy."
“I very much look forward to visiting the site in Maddiston with Falkirk Council’s Housing Officers in the near future.”
