More than 600 homes in the Falkirk area are to be upgraded after the council approved a £2.3m renovation programme.

The authority's policy and resources committee gave the go-ahead for properties in more than a dozen sites to get the improvements.

About £1m of the money will be spent on installing new central heating systems in nearly 500 homes.

Falkirk Council will spend the rest on rough-casting and re-roofing more than 100 houses in the area.

The authority said 11 locations will benefit from the new heating systems including Hallglen, Bonnybridge, Denny, Dunipace, Banknock and Camelon.

Councillor Craig Martin, convener of the committee, said: "We have an ongoing programme of works to our Council properties that will ensure our tenants have a safe and warm environment in which to live.

"This investment will ensure our properties also come up to meeting national standards set for the coming years."
