First-time buyers and anyone on the council house waiting list (Apply4Homes) are among those now eligible to buy new affordable housing available in Balmedie.
Aberdeenshire Council has joined forces with Barratt Homes to offer a three bedroom mid terraced property for £122,907 at Sandpipers, Balmedie.
It is estimated that the property will be completed by around March 2014 and will be available to those who meet certain criteria.
This includes: first time buyers or people with a significant change in their household circumstances whose gross annual income is in the region of £43,000 or less; are either tenants of Aberdeenshire Council or a Housing Association, or waiting list applicants.
Priority will be given to applicants who have a local connection to the areas, including anyone who lives, works or has a family in Balmedie or nearby.
The council is able to offer these properties to successful applicants as part of the planning process, where developers are required to assist in the provision of affordable housing.
The properties are sold at a fixed reduced price by the developer to successful applicants as nominated by the council.
