As indicated elsewhere in this web site SCATA's major focus is on trading, developing and managing community assets for the benefit of local people. Initially this is through the provision of affordable housing as this was a key priority identified in the 2009 Parish Plan.
SCATA's first project is the development of 7 affordable homes, 6 in Guessburn and 1 on New Ridley Road. More information on these can be found within the Project 1 pages.
Initial feasibility studies are currently being undertaken on a possible Project 2 which again will focus on affordable housing on a brownfield site within the village. Information on Project 2 will be posted on this site as it becomes available.
Project 1 - Building Affordable HomesDuring the time a Community Development Trust was under discussion, two small brownfield sites became available and the possibility of developing affordable housing units emerged. Major efforts were made to assess support for the project including the major housing needs survey, and other consultation activities including exhibitions of the plans and drop in sessions as indicated by the following and information documents distributed to the local community.
