Securing the site for development

After extensive public consultation, we submitted a detailed proposal to Midlothian Council promoting the site for an allocation in the LDP for residential development. Discussions took place with various Council departments, in particular education; as the provision of a site for a primary school was a key consideration. The site has now been allocated in the finalised draft of the LDP for 350 residential units and includes a site for a new primary school.

Planning for the future

We are now commencing a number of pre-application workstreams, including dialogues with the Council and undertaking technical studies which will help inform how the development will progress and the form it will take.

A planning application will be submitted once all the workstreams and pre-application studies have been completed. This is likely to be at the start of 2017.

There is strong interest in the site from National housebuilders and once consent is obtained we will undertake the key infrastructure works before selling the serviced parcels onto housebuilders on a phased basis.
