Project Shoreline: Bowmore

Islay Estates is working closely with Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) and Argyll and Bute Council to provide a number of affordable homes on Islay.

The plan is to develop some of the land to the south west of Bowmore in order to provide some residential and commercial premises as well as upgrading the leisure facilities around the school.

There has been a lot of interest in affordable housing on Islay recently – in order to maintain a healthy working population (in more ways than one) there is a need for many more houses. ACHA will hopefully be in a position shortly to confirm how much funding is available and how many homes may be built in the first phase of Project Shoreline.
