Following acquisition, all buildings and structures that remained on site have now been demolished and a programme of extensive remediation and earthworks has been ongoing to create the first parcels of serviced land for sale. These works also include installing utilities, drainage and infrastructure to the site.
At the start of 2018, the first parcel of land (around 6-acres) was sold to Arnold Clark to build a new 30,000 sq ft car showroom with construction starting on-site shortly.
Just 12 months later, in 2019, a second plot of land – the site’s first residential plot – was sold to Barratt Homes to build 191 homes over 11.4 acres with construction currently ongoing.
At the start of 2020, a second retail plot was sold to Costa Coffee for the build out of a Drive-Thur unit at the site’s main entrance, with work starting in June and expected to complete towards the end of the year.
