SPRINGFIELD Properties has confirmed it has secured about 400 acres of zoned land in West Lothian for a 1,900-home development.
The new site, which has a gross development value (GDV) of over £400 million, is located on the south west border of Livingston.
The housebuilder is now working on a masterplan for the site and said it expects to submit a detailed planning application for phase 1 of approximately 600 private and affordable homes by early next year. The area is zoned for 1,900 homes as well as commercial units and a primary school.
Sandy Adam, executive chairman of Springfield said, “I am delighted that we have secured this significant land deal, which extends our years of activity – strengthening our long-term future. It is an excellent site in a location with high demand for new homes thanks to its easy access to both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
“We have a proven track record in delivering long-term projects like this one and by applying the expertise that we have gained through the development of our villages, we can accelerate the successful development of this new site. We would expect to be able to begin selling homes around three years from now. We look forward to working with West Lothian Council to bring to life the vision they have for this area to provide much-needed new homes and create a new desirable locality within the established town of Livingston.”
