Clarification was sought this week from Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership over their plans to build 44 new homes in the Barrhill/Woodlands area of Newton Stewart.
A member of the public queried the status of the planning permission for the project which was part of the social housing landlords plans for funding it received from the Scottish Government last week.
Yesterday DGHP confirmed that the planning application was still being processed.
A spokesperson for DGHP said: “Both of these sites are subject to the statutory approvals, i.e. planning.”
