Full description

The subjects comprise two separate but adjoining development sites which can either be purchased in whole or separate lots.

Site 1 extends to approximately 1.88 acres having a good 51m frontage to Slitrig Crescent. The site has a valid Planning Consent for 62 apartments and 6 townhouses. There is additional access from Mill Path offering flexibility of site layout.

Site 2 is adjacent, extending to 2.4 acres. A previous Planning Consent for 64 apartments and 11 detached houses has now lapsed but this does establish the principle of residential development on the site and we consider the local Planning Authority are likely to have a positive outlook to reactivation and revision of this consent.


Hawick is an attractive town in the Scottish Borders located at the confluence of the river Teviot and Slitrig water approximately 12 miles south of Selkirk and 21 miles south west of Kelso. The town is well known as a centre for knitwear and textiles as well as its strong sporting heritage in Rugby, Football. The town lies within the Scottish Borders region and has a population of approximately 15,000 people.

Slitrig Crescent lies towards the southern periphery of the town overlooked by low lying hillside and fronting Slitrig Water a tributary of the river Teviot. The northern end of Slitrig Crescent lies a short walk from Hawick town centre and contains some traditional styled and quite attractive residential properties which provide a good quality environment for this development.


Much of the land has been cleared for development. Some industrial buildings remain in active use on site 2 but vacant possession can be obtained at relatively short notice.


The site has good existing road frontage and all main services are assumed to be available to the site. Interested parties should verify this with the utility provider.


Copies of both active and lapsed Planning Consents can be provided to interested parties or by reference to the Borders Council Planning portal. 1- 4 Slitrig Crescent (site 1) is referenced - 08\01373\FUL and provides consent for the 6 townhouses occupying the frontage to the site with Planning Consent 08\01405\OUT containing the consent for the 62 apartments.

The lapsed consent for 6 - 9 Slitrig Crescent (site 2) is also under two separate references 06\01770\OUT dealing with the detached housing and 07\02317\FUL encompassing the 64 apartments.

Our clients would be happy to discuss offers which are suspensive on reactivating the residential planning consent and any necessary remix of unit style.


Site 1 (1-4 Slitrig Crescent) Offers around 450,000
Site 2 (6-9 Slitrig Crescent) Offers around 500,000


Access to occupied parts of the site can be arranged by appointment but much of the site can be viewed from the surrounding roadways and footpaths and a woodland walk provides an elevated view on the Southern boundary of both sites.
