Opportunity to see the future of Lochside

RESIDENTS and businesses in Lochside are being urged to go and view the latest regeneration proposals for the area.

Since 2022, Wheatley Homes South and Dumfries and Galloway Council have been engaging with the local community to develop a housing-led masterplan to regenerate the area.

Ahead of the planning application being submitted to the council, a public event is being held at the North West Community Campus on Thursday, March 14, from 4.30 pm to unveil the plans.

Alan Glasgow, managing director of Wheatley Homes South, said: “The views of tenants and residents are key to this process, and we are very grateful that so many have shared their views on what they would like to see form part of the regeneration.

“Our work in Lochside forms part of Wheatley’s ambitious plans for Dumfries and Galloway over the coming years, where we will regenerate areas, build new affordable homes and create communities that meet the needs of people from across the region.

“To date, the feedback on the Lochside proposals has been overwhelmingly positive with the local community keen to see work start on the regeneration to create a thriving, healthy and sustainable neighbourhood for people to live, learn and work.

“We hope to see as many people as possible attend the event to meet and speak with Wheatley Homes South and council staff and see the proposals for the area.”

Councillor Ian Carruthers added: “We are delighted to share the final regeneration proposals for Lochside and present them to the residents and businesses of the area at the public event.

“The community has played an essential role in shaping this housing-led masterplan, and their input has been invaluable. The final proposals have been developed to align with the requirements and wishes of the community and will create a thriving and sustainable neighbourhood for people to live, work, and learn.

“We urge Lochside residents to attend the public event and have their say.”
