First Phase of Murtholm Development Starts On Site

02 March 2023

We are really pleased that the enabling works phase for our masterplanned affordable housing development at Murtholm, Langholm for Loreburn Housing Association has commenced on site this week.

The enabling works are key to unlocking the site and will create a site access point from the A7 trunk road, utility diversions and the formation of an access road onto the site.

The next phase will provide publicly useable central open space, a 35-unit extra care housing facility, and a new active travel foot and cycle bridge over the River Esk, linking the development with the wider settlement.

The extra care housing will be designed and constructed to achieve passivhaus certification, and will be the first extra care development of this type in Dumfries and Galloway.
