Councillors back new West Lothian development

PLANS for a new 266-home development in Livingston have been approved by West Lothian Council.

Councillors voted in favour of plans lodged by Dundas Estates to build the homes at Uphall Station, marking the housebuilder’s first Livingston development in nearly a decade.

Uphall Station Village will comprise one and two-bed apartments, three, four and five-bed detached, semi-detached and terraced homes, and 20 affordable plots. The proposals also include a community hub.

Bruce Dunlop, managing director of Dundas Estates said, “We’re very pleased by this decision from local councillors as we believe this development will bring real benefits to the local area, while also helping to ease market demand, which is currently at an all-time high. Uphall Station Village will provide homes that will meet the needs of a wide demographic, including a range of apartments for first time buyers and downsizers, and an excellent mix of properties for growing families, as well as affordable housing options.

“The development’s close connections to open green space and commuter links will also be hugely beneficial for buyers, and the inclusion of the Community Hub will provide the opportunity to create a social environment among residents.”

Work is due to start imminently, with sales expected to launch this spring.
