AN ALLOA housing development has been shortlisted for another award for its accessibility and inclusion.

The flagship dementia-friendly Townhead House development at Primrose Place is in the finals of this year’s Scottish Home Awards.

Kingdom Housing Association, who worked in partnership with Clackmannanshire Council to deliver the homes, will on Thursday, June 13, find out if the development earns the accolade in the Excellence in Accessibility and Inclusion category.

The development has previously been recognised at the Scotland Housing Awards 2023, having opened to residents last year.

The 60 affordable units, all for social rent, were designed to support Clackmannanshire Council's sustainable ageing policy.

Kingdom has also been shortlisted in another four categories, including for developments in Glenrothes and Gauldry.

Tricia Hill, development director at the Kingdom Group, said: “I am delighted to have so many of our developments shortlisted at the Scottish Home Awards this year.

“At Kingdom, our new build development programme allows us to make a real difference, delivering homes that meet a range of needs at affordable rents.

“We know that working closely with partners like Campion Homes we can do more and achieve more for our customers and our communities.

“Each of our shortlisted developments are very different with unique features that will benefit our customers; whether that’s class-leading energy efficiency found in our Passivhaus development at Gauldry or the dementia-friendly design elements at Primrose Place that allow customers to live independently in their own homes for longer.”

Kingdom Housing Association, part of the Kingdom Group, has also been named as one of the finalists for the Housing Association of the Year award.

Tom Barclay, Kingdom Group chief executive, added: “It’s a real honour to be named as a finalist in so many diverse categories at the Scottish Home Awards.

“At Kingdom we know the positive impact high-quality affordable housing has on people’s lives and we work hard with our partners to deliver homes that are genuinely life-changing.”
