A former police station in Stenhousemuir is to be transformed into a development of 18 new council homes as part of a community regeneration scheme on disused public sector sites.
Across Scotland, former publicly owned land and buildings including hospitals, prisons and police stations are being redeveloped to allow hundred of affordable homes to be built.
Falkirk East MSP Angus MacDonald said: “Housing is, and will remain, at the heart of the Scottish Government’s ambitions to create a fairer and more prosperous country.
“Indeed, the redevelopment of this derelict constabulary site is a prime example of what can be achieved when partners share a vision linking urban regeneration with community wellbeing. The project demonstrates the potential the creative use of space has to bring about a positive transformation.
“In filling both a property construction and social welfare gap, the council house development project on Main Street augurs well for the whole community life around Stenhousemuir Town Centre.”
He said he looks forward to similar projects in future.
