MSP and MP visit Arran View site in Saltcoats

16 November 2022

Local politicians Kenneth Gibson MSP and Patricia Gibson MP visited Arran View development and met with workers and apprentices to hear about the home builder’s investment across North Ayrshire.

We are one of North Ayrshire’s biggest home builders, with the Arran View development in Saltcoats the second of three phases of development at Clyde Shores, totalling 236 new homes. The site includes a combination of two, three and four bedroom homes.

Cunninghame North MSP Kenneth Gibson and North Ayrshire and Arran MP Patricia Gibson – the SNP Shadow Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government – were given a tour of the site and met with the team to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the housing sector.

Chris Logan, West Scotland Managing Director, said:

“It was great to welcome Kenneth and Patricia to our Arran View development to show them the new homes and investment in the community that will benefit local residents.

“As one of North Ayrshire’s biggest home builders, we’re creating successful and vibrant communities across the local authority area and helping to attract new working-age residents to live here. Our home buyers in North Ayrshire are typically young adults and growing families, and nearly half are first time buyers.

“With the average price of a Persimmon home 18% below the average price of a new build in Scotland, we’re proud to be opening the door to home ownership for more families in Saltcoats and across North Ayrshire.”

Kenneth Gibson MSP said:

“We welcomed the opportunity to visit Arran View and discuss Persimmon’s ongoing local development plans and the challenges currently facing the industry – from labour shortages to rising costs, mortgage rate rises and economic uncertainty – as well as the forward planning of new sites in North Ayrshire.”
