New units bring opportunities to Cumnock Town Centre

Cumnock’s multi-million pound regeneration has moved into a new phase with with launch of the  brand new 935 sqm Farmfoods store and retail units right in the centre of town.

Continuing the comprehensive revamp of the town centre, which has included the restoration of many of the town’s beautiful historic buildings, and the development of a block of 7 new shops on Townhead Street, the new development puts the heart back into the town’s shopping area. And, with up to 5 units for rent facing onto Glaisnock Street, it offers a great new opportunity for businesses to lease brand new multipurpose units with nearby free parking.

Set over a total of over 500 sqm, the development, which has been designed by specialist architects to blend in sympathetically with the town’s beautiful architecture, has a flexible layout, meaning it can be subdivided into a maximum of 5 units, with a number of possible permutations according to tenants’ requirements.

The units could be used for a variety of purposes, from traditional retail to leisure, food, office or service based businesses.

Councillor Jim Roberts said: “It’s great to see this major piece in the jigsaw of Cumnock’s town centre regeneration fall into place. The new shops and the surrounding landscape are a beautiful addition to the town, providing space and opportunity for people to enjoy and businesses to thrive. Using sympathetic architecture, the building enhances the look of the street,  complimenting the many beautiful historic buildings in the centre, many of which have been restored thanks to Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme funding from East Ayrshire Council and Historic Environment Scotland. We are doing whatever we can to support local businesses, enhance the environment and make shopping, working and living in Cumnock an exceptionally attractive option.”

The units are being leased out on behalf of East Ayrshire Council by Eric Young & Co. tel: 01312262641. Viewings are available by appointment. For more information visit
