What had been envisaged as a starting date within the next 2 years
had been dramatically reduced with the successful application for
34 new flats adjacent and just west of the Queen Mary building.
Work has already begun with the site partly cleared and further
work expected sooner than later.
In addition the 2 new 3-story houses at Avon Place is well under
way and will further enhance the area.
Attractive western approach
These new developments support the proposed upgrading of the 'Coffin'
block and Queen Mary building both of which, now with the necessary
funding in place, will see Corbiehall transformed into an attractive
and enhanced western approach to the town.
