MCR Property Group acquires prime Clackmannanshire site for residential development

MCR Property Group has announced its acquisition of a 37.3 acre site in Solsgirth, Clackmannanshire.

The Manchester and London-based UK-wide developer is exploring options to deliver a residential-led scheme on the land, which falls under the Clackmannanshire Local Development Plan.

Home to the former Solsgirth colliery, the site is nestled in the Clackmannanshire countryside with panoramic views of the Ochil Hills and nearby woodland.

Solsgirth boasts excellent commuter and transport links, situated approximately three miles south east of Dollar and 11 miles north-west of Dunfermline.

The majority of the Central Belt, including Falkirk and Stirling, is within a 30-minute drive, while Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh are approximately 45 minutes away by car. The new Queensferry Crossing provides significantly improved commuting times into the capital.

Gregor King, asset manager at MCR Property Group, said: “The attractive county town of Dollar is a popular residential area thanks to its high performing independent school, Dollar Academy, tranquil setting and enviable commuter links.

“At a time when the Scottish housing market is proving extremely buoyant, with house prices growing quicker than the UK average, we’re delighted to have acquired this significant site. We’re working closely with local planners on a strong vision for the site to create new homes that fully integrate with their stunning surroundings.”

MCR Property Group is delivering phase two of its £30million mixed-use Edinburgh development, Embankment West, which comprises 123 high specification apartments. The units are being sold via the company’s sales arm, Regency Residential.
