Regeneration and new housing development

Housing development is a key part of DGHP’s approach to asset management and overall business strategy due to the demand for affordable housing in the region.

Current Programme

DGHP are focusing on a number of forthcoming projects and are actively working towards appointing Design teams, followed by the submission of subsequent planning applications for the following sites:  

  • Queensberry Square, Sanquhar (10 units) 
  • Lincluden Stables (32 units) 
  • St Medens, Monreith (6 units) 
  • Herries Avenue, Dumfries (50 units) 
  • Curries Yard, Dumfries (80 units) 
  • Catherinefield Farm, Dumfries (150 units) 
  • Queensberry Brae, Thornhill (50 units) 
  • We are still in the early stages with each of these projects however, we aim to commence on site with 2 or 3 of these projects by late summer/autumn 2019. 

    What we’ve achieved so far  

    • Mill Road, Lochmaben – DGHP built on the old caravan site which was situated off Mill Road, Lochmaben. 25 homes were built which included a general needs mix of 2 and 3 bed houses and 1 bed flats.   
    • Lochfield Road, Dumfries – work has now completed on this project which sits adjacent to the Queen of the South Football arena. 16 homes were built on this site which includes a mix of 2 and 3 bed houses and 1 bed flats.  This development was completed 11 weeks ahead of schedule. 
    • Friars Vennel, Dumfries – work to replace a now demolished block of shops and flats in Friar’s Vennel has now been completed. This is a town centre area in Dumfries and was in need of renewal. The new development now consists of 6 flats which are situated above 2 commercial units which will be used as DGHP’s town centre offices. 
    • Queen Street, Dumfries – The development, which is of Gold Standard in terms of sustainability and energy efficiency, is made up of three 4-bedroom townhouses. They feature many energy efficiency features, including thermal solar panels, photovoltaics, triple glazing, waste water recovery, noise reduction measures as well as bicycle shelters and rainwater storage.  This development was completed on schedule and has received many positive feedback comments, with the DG1 Community Group praising DGHP and the contractors for transforming the appearance of Queen Street. 

    Future Schemes  

    Beyond our current schemes, DGHP is progressing work on a number of developments across Dumfries and Galloway, targeting areas of particular need in Dumfries and other areas.  

    Forthcoming areas for developments include land north of the C98A Public Road, Johnstonebridge; Gillwood Road, Eastriggs and also a masterplan for land off Ewart Place, Springholm.  

    DGHP has a rigorous development appraisal methodology. For each proposed scheme, an appraisal of development costs, future income and management and maintenance costs is prepared before any commitment is made.
