REMINDER: Drop-in information event on Dunbeg road upgrade

Dunbeg residents are reminded that a drop-in information event will take place on 1 June on council plans to upgrade the village’s Kirk Road.

Proposals are in place to improve the road, with work anticipated to start later this year, subject to a successful application for Scottish Government housing infrastructure funding.

It is part of the Dunbeg Corridor Strategic Masterplan, which sets out plans for sites between Dunbeg and Ganavan.

As well as the road improvements, the masterplan includes 600 new homes, retail and commercial development, green spaces, playparks and landscaping.

The information evening will take place in Dunbeg Primary School on Thursday 1 June from 4 to 7pm.

Local residents are invited to call in at any time during that time period to find out more about what’s planned for Kirk Road from the council planning team behind the project.

The information drop-in event is taking place across three hours to give as many people as possible the chance to attend.

The masterplan complies with the council’s local development plan, which outlines major development proposals for the next five years.

It will provide a framework for development in Dunbeg and the subsequent planning applications for the sites, which includes 300 homes in the first phase.
