PLANNING GRANTED FOR NEW FOOD VILLAGE AT THE LOREBURNE CENTRE

Hurstwood Holdings, the owners of the Loreburne Centre in Dumfries, has been granted planning permission for a new £500,000 indoor Food Village.

Designed by RGP Architects, the contemporary new Food Village will provide an eclectic array of local entrepreneurs and popular high street operators in 8,000 sq ft of space with flexible table and seating areas.  The project is going through the final stages of design and will be put out to tender in the coming weeks.

Michael O’Hagan, General Manager of Loreburne Centre, comments: “The feedback on the changes that Hurstwood has already made to the Centre has been fantastic and we are very much looking forward to this next important stage in its development as a key retail and leisure destination . The Food Village will dramatically improve our existing offering and is sure to attract new and existing visitors to the Centre and in turn, Dumfries. We plan to have the Food Village operational by Christmas this year.”
