Two Planning Approvals for Wheatley

01 August 2022

Grant of Planning Permission has been received for 2 affordable housing developments in Dumfries and Galloway for our client Wheatley Group / DGHP.

Firstly, in Glenluce we have obtained approval for regeneration of the site of the recently demolished Glenbay Hotel in the centre of the village. The development will provide 10 affordable homes including 5 townhouses along the site frontage.

Secondly, in Springholm we have obtained approval for a housing development on an allocated housing site to provide 47 affordable homes in total. A design solution was developed in conjunction with the Engineer and Landscape Architect to integrate, connect and sit well within the surrounding village context. The design solution developed takes cognisance of Design Streets / Creating Places guidance by forming a series of shared streets that connect with areas of existing and new green infrastructure.

In addition, on behalf of our client Wheatley Group / DGHP an application for Planning Permission has been lodged forĀ an allocated housing site to provide 33 affordable homes in Johnstonebridge.

All homes include extra energy-efficient features such as solar panels, air source heat pumps and electric vehicle charging points.

We look forward to working on the next stages of these projects.
