ABERDEEN: The Scottish Government is committing £21 million, with local housing associations providing another £12 million to build 209 homes to form part of a new urban village on the site of a former paper mill beside the River Don in the Tillydrone area of Aberdeen.
The new urban village, scheduled for completion in 2014, will also include office space and business start up units, a children's nursery, neighbourhood shops, and a further 77 units for private sale.
The remainder of the funding package – £22 million – is investment from Tenants First Housing Co-operative, Langstane Housing Associations and private finance, bringing the total to £55 million.
