Dumfries and Galloway Council Design Awards Commendation

18 September 2023

We are pleased to announce our affordable housing development at Lincluden Stables, Dumfries for our client Wheatley Group received a Commendation in the Dumfries and Galloway Council Design Awards 2023.

This development on a brownfield site located in Dumfries provided twenty-six new-build dwellings and included adaptive reuse of a derelict Category B Listed stable to provide a further six dwellings.

The panel welcomed the bringing back into use of the former Category B stables for residential use and the associated enabling development of new social housing, with use of glazed brick to unify the scheme.

Three of our other projects were shortlisted in the Design Awards including Clifftop House, Portpatrick which featured on Grand Designs, our Passive House Certified Affordable Housing Development at Forsyth Street, Dumfries and our 75-dwelling Affordable Housing Development at former College, Herries Avenue, Dumfries.
