Construction to begin on affordable new homes

Housebuilder Cruden is set to start work on a mix of 49 affordable properties in Livingston, on behalf of Link Group Ltd.

The £8.7m development will see energy-efficient new homes built on a previously disused 1.2 hectare, brownfield site in Craigshill.

The modern development will provide a range of sustainable flats, built across three blocks, which will be three and four storeys high. The one and two bedroomed homes will provide residents with high quality accommodation for social rental.

Located at Sydney Street, the vibrant development is ideally positioned, close to a number of amenities in the heart of Craigshill, including shops, health centres and schools. The new development also has excellent transport links to its surrounding communities and the nearby train stations at Livingston and Uphall offer easy access to Edinburgh and Glasgow city centres.

The new homes also provide a fantastic range of on-site facilities including attractive green space, electric vehicle charging points, bike storage and on-site parking.

Work will start this Autumn and is expected to complete in Summer 2025.

Fraser Lynes, Managing Director of Cruden Homes, said: “We are pleased to continue our successful relationship with Link as work gets underway at Sydney Street. This exciting development will transform a previously empty site to bring quality, new homes to the local area.

“Craigshill is a strong location with plenty of amenities nearby to cater to the everyday needs of residents. These new homes will make a great addition to the surrounding community, providing attractive and sustainable living space at a time when it is needed most.”

Colin Culross, Group Commercial Director of Link Group, said: “Link is delighted to continue its partnership with Cruden Homes to deliver much needed affordable housing at Sydney Street. The new homes will be energy efficient delivering zero emissions heating

Web development in 2019 | Pluralsight

The first skills you’ll want to start learning if you’re getting into web development will be HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. These are part of what’s called front-end web development, and they are the foundational file formats of the web.

You can think of building a website like building a house. You need some structure, foundation, walls, ceilings, windows, and so on. That structure would be considered our HTML. Structure isn’t enough to live in a modern house today, you need paint, some sort of interior design, furniture and other necessities in order to have a comfortable place. Those more “stylistic” items would be considered the CSS. And lastly, if your house doesn’t run on proper plumbing and electricity, then things don’t really function well. This is where JavaScript comes in. JavaScript is the de facto programming language for the web. It is the language the provides the interactivity between the layout, styles and of course the users. Without it, users would only be presented with information, but they wouldn’t have any way to interact with that information.

Mastering these skills together will give you enough to “break into” the industry as there are plenty of jobs centered around just these three languages. With these skills, you’ll understand how to display text, images and other objects in a web browser, and you’ll be better able to execute solid web development down the road.
