Dundee property development and investment group, Carling & Co, has picked up the award for Most Outstanding Affordable Housing Provider in the UK 2015 at the UK Over 50s Housing Awards, held this week in London.
The awards, now in their sixth year, were created by the UK Over 50s Housing Weekly News to celebrate and reward excellence in the UK Over 50s housing sector and Carling & Co have proven to be an outstanding business in this sector.
Run by Graeme and Leanne Carling, a husband and wife team, Carling & Co own and manage rental properties all over the country with many properties in the Dundee and Arbroath area. The award has recognised their commitment to providing quality affordable housing for their tenants.
After securing several multi-million pounds deals to secure more affordable housing solutions in the Dundee and Angus area in 2015, Carling & Co are on course to increase their affordable housing portfolio to 1,000 properties within the next five years.
Graeme Carling, Co-Founder of Carling & Co, commented:
â€œ2015 has been an exciting year of growth for us and we are very proud to be recognised by the UK Over 50s Housing Awards for our work in developing Affordable Housing solutions in the Dundee and Angus area. Our success, which has culminated in winning this award, has been a real team effort with our staff, colleagues and many other stakeholders playing a key role in our growth this year.
â€œThere are many problems faced by people in Scotland looking to access affordable housing. It is particularly difficult for young families, those on low incomes and first time buyers. The work of private companies like Carling & Co is invaluable in helping to improve the housing situation. We are very aware that there is an affordable housing shortage in many areas of Scotland and we are doing our bit to help improve the situation by providing affordable housing solutions in the Dundee area.
