The subjects comprise a cleared brownfield site, formerly occupied by an abattoir. The site is of irregular shape, but is generally level-lying. We calculate that the site area extends to approximately 0.278 hectare (0.69 acre) or thereby on the basis of dimensions scaled from the Ordnance Survey extract overleaf, although details will require to be verified with reference to the title deeds. Dumfries & Galloway Council own adjacent land, and our clients advise that they have indicated a willingness to offer some of this ground for sale to enlarge the site, if so required


CASTLE DOUGLAS, with a population of around 4,070, is an attractive market town in the Dumfries and Galloway region of southwest Scotland. The town has retained much of its original character, and the wide variety of local retailers and the excellent range of facilities offered has helped Castle Douglas continue to flourish as a shopping destination. The area is very popular with tourists too, with the surrounding area boasting unspoilt countryside, forests and a varied coastline. GLENRIGG PLACE, at the northern end of Cotton Street, is an established predominantly residential district within Castle Douglas and benefits from being located adjacent to a large expanse of open space to the north and west. The town’s main shopping and business area, which is centred around King Street, is a short level walk away – and other amenities, including supermarkets and healthcare facilities, are available within easy reach

Incentives Our clients appreciate that many developers face a variety of difficulties in procuring their proposals, and bringing schemes to fruition in the current economic and financial climate. In particular, it is recognised that one of the main issues facing developers is a general lack of funding being available from the main financial institutions. As an incentive to interested parties we would be pleased to discuss, along with our clients, proposals to help facilitate the development of this site. For example, our clients would look quite favourably at options to form a joint venture to develop the site. Alternatively, consideration may also be given to accepting stage/phased payments for the land, or perhaps deferring final payment until the development is complete or units are sold.
