City region deal project information

Affordable Housing (Pan-Highland)

The initiative will offer young people attractive, affordable housing in the highlands to enable them to stay in the region, retaining a young and vibrant workforce for the Highlands. These will be high quality housing, initially for rent at affordable levels but with an opportunity to buy, should they wish to do so.
