An area of land in south Edinburgh has been brought back into use by construction company CCG (Scotland) Ltd.
CCG has invested £47,000 to create a brand new car park for the local community in Niddrie Mill. Located at Moffat Drive, the new facility adds capacity to an area where limited car parking is available. It is the latest social value iniative that has been undertaken in the area alongside a series of job and training opportunities as well as donations to social enterprises.
Since the company started work in the area in 2015, projects have included the regeneration of the former Niddrie Mill Primary School to deliver 66 mixed-tenure homes in addition to the new build construction of the Thistle Foundation Centre for Health and Wellbeing.
A further 194 homes are being constructed as part of the Craigmillar Town Centre Master Plan where CCG is working in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council. This follows on from CCG’s completion of 111 new affordable homes as part of the first phase of the Craigmillar Town Centre Masterplan on behalf of Dunedin Canmore – part of the Wheatley Group – earlier this year.
Calum Murray, Director of CCG, said:
“This new car parking facility is testament to CCG’s commitment to the community of Craigmillar. The area was not being used to its full potential and we, alongside the Council, were eager to see it brought into use.
“We look forward to continuing our work in Craigmillar which will see the delivery of modern, energy efficient housing as well as the provision of job and training opportunits and the donationto social enterprises and charitable organisations.”
