Port of Leith Housing Association (PoLHA) has been shortlisted for two Scottish Home Awards for two new developments in North Edinburgh. Its block of 15 flats and church centre at Boswall Parkway (pictured) has been shortlisted in the Community Partnership of the Year category and its 17 flats on West Granton Road are in the running for the Small Affordable Housing Development (Housing Associations).
Keith Anderson, Chief Executive of PoLHA, said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted in these two categories. We are committed to building high-quality, desirable affordable homes in communities people can be proud to live in and being shortlisted for these is a fantastic validation of that aim.”
PoLHA won Apartment of the Year at last year’s Scottish Home Awards for its development of social rent and shared ownership homes at Coburg Street, Leith and in 2010 won Large Affordable Housing Development of the Year for its development of 102 flats which were the first affordable homes at Western Harbour.
The Scottish Home Awards will take place at the Hilton Glasgow on June 28.
