 Joan McAlpine MSP said:

 

“This is the right decision by councillors and is good news for the town centre.  Last week I raised concerns that a move out of the Loreburn Centre by Next would result in other major retailers following.”

 

Ms McAlpine continued:

 

“That would have been bad news for the high street – at a time when The Stove network’s plan for housing in The Midsteeple Quarter offers real hope of regeneration.  I would encourage Next to rethink their plans and work with the management of the Loreburne Centre to develop their business in the centre of Dumfries – just as they did in Stirling after councillors there blocked a similar proposed move. ”
