New homes at Todlaw

Final phase of Todlaw development completed

Phase 4 of Berwickshire Housing Association’s Todlaw development in Duns has now been completed creating another 27 energy efficient and affordable homes.

Millar Court, Station Crescent and Station Drive make up the final phase of the Todlaw project which has provided a total of 87 new homes.

This latest phase, again built by Hart Builders (Edinburgh) Ltd, is made up of 11 flats and 16 houses. These include six three-bedroomed five-person houses, eight two-bedroomed four-person houses, two three-bedroomed six-person houses and 10 one bedroom two person flats. There is also one flat which is fully accessible for anyone with disabilities.

All the new homes are designed with level entrance paths and wider internal doors making them accessible for wheelchair users to visit and all have energy efficient gas heating which meets the ‘Gold Standard’ for energy performance.

Included in this latest phase is an area of ground which is classed as ‘meadowlands’ and BHA is linking up with Abundant Borders to create a community garden here.
