Thorny Hill Community Proposal


Thorny Hill Phase 2 (Masterplan and Community Engagement) received positive interest and support from local self builders. Our practice open day workshop invited people to come along and discuss the project masterplan and vision. It was a well attended day with encouraging comments to drive the project forward towards the next phase – outline planning submission (2020).

Thorny Hill Community Proposal is an exciting new pilot scheme for custom design self-build houses in Dunning which will include a community led initiative. 

The proposal has support from Scottish Government, as well as a positive response from the Council Officers that we have been working with.

Alongside the self-build housing, we also have an opportunity to create a community asset at Thorny Hill. This land will be made available by the landowner, and we are intending to hold a series of community workshops to determine what the nature of this should be to make a positive impact on the Dunning community.

To make this project a success and develop to it’s full potential we hope to engage a wide range of participants to define a future Vision, Development Framework and Action Plan.

We hosted a community event in Dunning on Thursday 27th September 2018 to discuss the proposal and the day was well attended.
