Councillor Tom Marshall (North Coast and Cumbraes) has welcomed the decision by North Ayrshire Council to build new housing on the former Largs Academy school site. The range of housing comprises 28 Sheltered Houses which will enable a future planned rebuild of the Sheltered Housing units at St Colm’s Place in School Street. There will also be 18 community bungalows suitable for a range of needs.
The 22 supported accommodation units will provide purpose-built housing for those persons who need close support.
Finally, the 54 terraced general needs houses will provide welcome accommodation for families and those who need to have a better standard of accommodation than at present.
