Parishioners will be aware that work has started on the site to the south of the village hall and that foundations for some homes are complete and that one home is well advanced . The aerial photograph shows the extent of the development.

Pearce Homes will build 14 homes of which two will be available for local people to purchase at 70% of market value, future sale of the properties will be subject to the same criteria.

A further home will be sold to a housing association and will be available for rent at social rent level. A number of local people expressed an interest in these discounted homes some time ago when Pearce Homes and the Parish Council were establishing need at the planning stage.

If still interested those people may wish to register as a user Click here for the discounted homes and for the rental home, these homes will be advertised here when they are complete Click here.


When the project is complete an area of land adjacent to the village hall will be transferred to the village along with a sum of money to be used on the development of the area for recreational and social use. This land will be known as a public open space. This land will be owned by the Parish Council but let to the Allardice Hall trustees who will manage it on behalf of the community.

During the next few months it is the intention of the trustees to call a meeting of local people to consult on the best way this land may be used. (There are of course strict rules over what can and cannot be done with a public open space)

On looking at the aerial photograph the land in question can be seen clearly, it is adjacent to the hall and is the area that is being used by the builders for their temporary buildings and storage of materials.
