News: 20 June 2019Perth development recognised for excellence in affordable homes

A housing development in Perth has been named the best Affordable Housing Development of the Year in Scotland. Muirton Living, which is being delivered by Scottish home builder Urban Union and supported by our planning and design teams, scooped the award at this year’s Scottish Home Awards – seeing off competition from across the country.

Sponsored by Priory Bridge, the Affordable Housing Development of the Year category recognises house builders who have committed to delivering an impeccable standard of built for purpose, affordable homes. 

Muirton Living, which is the final phase of the redevelopment of the Muirton area in the north of the city, hosts 203 affordable homes. At Muiton Living, Urban Union has created a unique community that puts residents at the forefront, delivering homes that are fit for purpose available for both private sale and as affordable housing.

Architectural Director Stuart Bishop said It’s great to see the Muirton Park scheme recognised in the Affordable Housing Development of the Year category. We are proud of the work we delivered, which involved architecture and town planning services, including landscape design and masterplanning. We have a track record in community-led regeneration projects and helping our partners create beautiful new spaces that are affordable for people to buy and enjoy.”

Now in its 12th year, the Scottish Home Awards commend excellence in new build housing with a focus on design, innovation, marketing and customer care. This year’s ceremony was held in Glasgow where nearly 700 industry professionals attended.

Muirton Living offers a selection of one to four-bedroom homes, with something for everyone from first time buyers to growing families. The development sits within the catchment area of five local schools, both at primary and secondary level.
