An update on The Garrick, Stranraer

News of the liquidation of a longstanding build contractor in Scotland, Stewart and Shields hit the local and housing media this week, affecting Loreburn’s development at the former Garrick hospital site in Stranraer. 

Though the setback is unwelcome news, we’re working quickly to deal with the implications and taking all necessary steps to appoint a new contractor to get this significant development completed as soon as possible.

The Garrick will see 26 new homes built, many with specialist design features and others dedicated to improving the accommodation prospects for young people in the area.  In addition, a range of opportunities for local businesses, groups and recreational pursuits.  The Garrick will be a first for the region and a valuable community resource for Stranraer.

We can promise a warm welcome to everyone as soon as the development opens.
