Planning approval has been granted for a further 177 houses and apartments in Pennywell, northwest Edinburgh.

Urban Union’s second phase plans for the Pennywell Living development is part of an overall vision with the City of Edinburgh Council to deliver approximately 719 homes in the area.

The latest phase comprises a range of two and three-storey terraced, semi-detached town houses with modern exteriors and three new blocks of apartments, all centred around a village green space.

Work is intended to start on site later this year and the first homes will be released for sale in early 2016.

Graeme Nicol, managing director of Urban Union said, “The granting of planning permission for the second stage of works marks another milestone in our partnership with 21st Century Homes and our plans to provide much needed homes in the Pennywell area.We will now begin to build a further 177 homes, which have been carefully designed with young couples, families and downsizers in mind. With the highest quality fittings and finishes, we expect interest in these homes to be high.”

Pennywell Living is the result of a major investment of £42 million by The City of Edinburgh Council’s 21st Century Homes programme, which will see Urban Union deliver 356 new social and mid-market homes for rent from the Council alongside 363 new properties for private sale.
