Doozers doing their thing
At long last - after a generation of not building homes the council is to build and manage council homes, please can the houses be family sized homes, three and four bedroom (even bigger for some families) as they are much needed. Read more here
Council - please note that in the republic, that there is land in the Old Town crying out for housing and with planning permission too and belongs to the council e.g. Calton Road (and more but you could start here).
Hopefully the council will work with communities to build homes they need with the infrastructure required so mistakes of the 60s and 70s are not replicated.
