Dougall Baillie Win Ayr Residential Development

Dougall Baillie Associates (DBA) have secured a significant contract on a major development site near Ayr, which is in its initial phase. The development could provide 750 new homes for the fast-growing area.

DBA have been instructed by Allanvale Investments in order to provide key transportation, road and bridge engineering design services at Corton, in the Southeast Ayr strategic expansion site.

The site has been underdeveloped for some time, and it has passed through different ownership, however, necessary consents are in place, and, the current developer now has plans to be on site by Summer 2020.

Along with the residential element, the development, which is location on the east side of the A77 near Ayr Hospital, will also include retail, employment and local community spaces, and will also help bring fruition to this area as part of South Ayrshire Council’ local development plan.

Stuart Harrow, Transportation Director at DBA, said: “Corton is a transformative development, representing the first phase of a larger, long term Strategic Expansion Site which could eventually feature up to 2700 new homes.

“Major residential developers have expressed keen interest in being part of the project and the current developers have identified great potential in what is a vibrant area in which to live and work.”

DBA have also prepared a major Transport Assessment for the development Masterplan, which considers the sustainability and integration of transport solutions and roads infrastructure interventions on both the local and trunk road networks.

DBA will also work in partnership with Transport Scotland, Ayrshire Roads Alliance and the local Council on internal roads on the site and junction and capacity improvement as well as delivering a footbridge across the A77 which will allow pedestrian access to the site.
