Work has begun on new affordable homes in Heathery Park, Gulberwick.
Hjaltland Housing Association has started building 12 properties after it received support from Shetland Islands Council and the Scottish government. The contractor is DITT Construction Ltd.
The association says the development will provide eight flats and four houses for rent next to existing properties.
Head of investment Paul Leask said: “I am delighted we’ve finally been able to start on site and look forward to working with DITT Construction on this development.”
Chief Executive Bryan Leask added: “We’ve worked extremely hard over the last few months to get things back on track and I’d like to acknowledge the significant effort that has gone into getting this project up and running.”
DITT director John Tait added: “The properties are designed to the very high standards required for the Shetland climate.”
