South Scotland

Kirkcudbright Creamery housing approved

Councillors have gone against officer advice and approved plans to build 36 houses on the site of a former creamery in southern Scotland.

Social landlord DGHP wants to construct the properties on the old Milklink factory land in Kirkcudbright.

It shut down two years ago and the local community council wanted the area to be kept for industrial use.

However, planning councillors have given the green light for the project to proceed on the site.
