Stranraer Housing Boost

HOUSING in Dumfries and Galloway is in line for a £13 million boost - with an area of Stranraer earmarked for a major share in the cash.

South central Stranraer is one of three areas prioritised by the council under the local housing strategy.

Residents in that area are to have a say in what work is carried out on their doorstep and will be lobbied by councillors in a bid to improve the condition of their housing stock.

Local councillors hope work on a regeneration package could start by next year. Stranraer South member Willie Scobie said:

"We need to set up a working group to find out what would be the optimum desire for residents living in south central Stranraer and work back from there.

"The working group would then draw down on some of this money."

The £13 million comes from the sale of land at the Cuckoo Bridge in Dumfries to supermarket giants Tesco.
