Berwickshire Housing Association has unveiled plans for 49 brand new homes to be built to the south of Ayton Primary School.

The new estate will be accessed from Summerhill Park, with a secondary access route coming off Lawfield Drive.

A meeting with Ayton Community Council is being held on Tuesday, September 4, to present the designs to councillors, followed by a public meeting during the week commencing September 17, at Ayton Primary School.

Berwickshire Housing Association development manager Colin Young said: “We’ve owned this site for over 20 years and we’re delighted that it is finally moving forward and will bring much needed homes to Ayton.

“The planning application will be for the whole site, but Berwickshire Housing Association is only proposing the construction of 29 units in phase one. No date has been agreed for phase two, but it is likely to be some years in the future. The proposed housing is a mix of house types and sizes to meet local demand.”
