Planning Application Approved

Planning application has been consented for 44 units on Douglas & Angus’ Gateside Farm which is located on the western edge of the village of Douglas in South Lanarkshire.

With a range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, the layout of the development follows the principles of “Designing for Streets” with access along a tree lined avenue with a village green and parking courtyard.  Homes are designed to be of heritage style yet incorporate modern luxuries and energy efficiency.

Douglas is only 2 miles from the M74 and ideally suited for commuting to Hamilton, Motherwell and, with the new M74 link, Glasgow is just over half an hour away.   There is also a regular bus service to and from the market town of Lanark. Douglas provides an excellent location for home owners looking for a life in the country yet without being too far from major towns and cities.  Whilst having a small village feeling, Douglas has its own cottage hospital, shops, the Scrib Tree tea room (Scrib Tree), pubs, newly built primary school,  bank , church, doctors surgery, pharmacy, post office, community centre and bowling.  Nearby there is Douglas Water golf course and fishing on Stable Lake.
