Developer Swan Group has concluded the purchase of land at Corton, South Ayrshire which will deliver in excess of 750 new homes, its biggest development yet.
This includes the purchase of the adjacent Anderson land holding bringing the overall masterplan area to around 146 acres.
Swan Group has also secured substantial funding to complete the extensive infrastructure works, which will support the new community, including roads within the development and a new roundabout linking the site to the A77, a main route to Glasgow.
The Corton project will also include affordable housing provision, communal outdoor spaces, shops and food outlets, with some well-known retailers and restaurants already expressing an interest in being part of the development.
Phil McGinlay, managing director of Swan Group, said: “Swan Group is pleased to announce our plans to bring over 750 new homes to Corton, just south of Ayr. Having secured the required funding, we are ready to start the infrastructure works needed to support this new community. The houses will sit in the beautiful outskirts south of Ayr and will benefit from a range of community resources including open space provision, new shops and food outlets.
“We’re especially excited to announce our consideration to plan one of the area’s first vehicle charging stations, to support the growing use of electric vehicles, vital in reducing the level of engine fumes for the people who will be living in Corton.
“Swan Group is planning to start work on the infrastructure in the first quarter of 2022. This is our biggest development to date and we are immensely proud to be extending our vision of bringing high-quality new homes to Ayrshire, in addition to our other projects in Aberdeen, Royston, Dalmarnock and Edinburgh Road.”
