Scotland’s social justice secretary Alex Neil was in Aberdeen on Monday to hear about Sanctuary’s plans for 120 new affordable homes targeted at key public sector workers, such as NHS staff.

The Scottish Government is undertaking a pilot key worker project in Aberdeen – the first of its kind in Scotland – which will provide new and affordable housing for key workers in the north east.

Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association plans to construct approximately 120 affordable homes on the 1.7 hectare site of the former Craiginches Prison.

Sanctuary Scotland’s head of development Roddy Macdonald welcomed Mr Neil to Craiginches and briefed him on Sanctuary’s plans.
