The development was officially opened by Jackie Baillie MSP for Dumbarton.

“This is a proud day for the Association turning what was a derelict site in the centre of Helensburgh into 32 much needed homes.”
Jackie Baillie MSP added
“I am delighted to see 32 new homes built in Helensburgh. There is a clear need for more housing in the area and the bonus is that these homes are suitable for individuals and families. I want to congratulate Argyll Community Housing Association for all their hard work in providing new homes for our local community.
Alongside the official opening a commemorative bench was unveiled in tribute to the late Danny Kelly. Danny, a former Argyll and Bute Councillor, served for many years on ACHA’s Board and local Helensburgh and Lomond Area Committee. Danny was a passionate advocate for affordable housing and visited the development to view progress prior to his passing in June of this year.
