Major Scottish housebuilder Cruden Homes has announced the launch of two new developments which it has taken over from Carronvale Homes, which went into administration in the summer. One is in Grangemouth, near Falkirk, and the other is in Bathgate, West Lothian.

The venture is a joint project between Scottish housebuilder Cruden Homes and Places for People, one of the country‘s largest property management, development and regeneration companies.
