Penman site up for sale

A FORMER engineering plant in Locharbriggs is being sold.

Penman Engineering vacated the 14-acre site at Heathhall last year and now Shepherd Chartered Surveyors is bringing it to market as “large industrial premises or a redevelopment opportunity for sale”.

The property was originally constructed as part of a WWII airbase and subsequently operated as a manufacturing factory.

The existing accommodation is split between two detached former aircraft hangers, both of which have been extended.

Fraser Carson, associate in Shepherd’s Dumfries office, said: “We are delighted to have been instructed to assit with the disposal of this rare opportunity and expect strong levels of enquiries from those considering both residential and mixed-use projects.

“The site has played an important employment role over the years, and it will be good to see it redeveloped to once again serve the local community. Alternatively, the property is capable of continued commercial operation and is suited to a variety of uses, subject to local authority consent.”
