Dicks Hill Regeneration Under Way

A multi-million pound regeneration of Dicks Hill in Stranraer finally got under way on Monday.

Years of planning paid off when the Ailsa Gate construction site was officially opened.

The work will see hundreds of new homes built as part of a £63 million Dumfries and Galloway Neighbourhood Renewal Masterplan.

The timescale for the project has slipped by two months and a Stranraer councillor is calling on Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership (DGHP) to pick up the slack.

At the opening DGHP chairman George Murray said: “The start of construction work at Ailsa gate will help our tenants in Stranraer see their dreams become a reality in the shape of high quality, modern, affordable homes for their families.”

“As a DGHP tenant myself, I am very proud to say that our tenants have been involved throughout the process and have played a major role in decisions taken on both the design of their new homes and their new communities.”

The first sod was cut on Monday in a ceremony attended by new Scottish Parliament Presiding officer, MSP Alex Fergusson, representatives from the community, DGHP, Councillors and Communities Scotland.
