New Childrens Home in Arbroath

Work begins today on the construction of a new £1.6m children's home in James Chalmers Road in Arbroath for Angus Council.

The works comprise two identical buildings, Homes 1 and 2.  Each home has four children's bedrooms with en-suite accommodation and various education, recreation, living, dining and staff accommodation areas.

The homes are to be heated by Biomass boilers with gas boiler backups.

The home will replace the existing Kinnaird Street Young Persons Units which currently provides both long and short term residential care services to young people with a range of complex needs.
