Cruden gains permission to build 81 Longniddry homes

CRUDEN Homes has secured planning permission to build 81 new homes as part of the first phase of the expansion masterplan at Longniddry.

The development, located south of Longniddry Farms, is being delivered in conjunction with Socially Conscious Capital, Wemyss and March Estates and Taylor Architecture & Urbanism.

The site will have high quality, distinctive new housing features which will integrate within the existent settlement, according to Cruden.

Designed by architects Halliday Fraser Munro and Ben Pentreath, a variety of traditional house styles archetypal of East Lothian will be constructed, with renewable technologies used. Because of the landscaped environment of the site, extensive green spaces will also be created as well as a wildlife corridor along the existing Braid’s Burn.

Fraser Lynes, land and development director for Cruden Homes said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to take forward the great work carried out by Socially Conscious Capital and Taylor Architecture & Urbanism. We believe fully in the design principals which are embedded within the existing masterplan and are pleased to further strengthen our presence within East Lothian.”

Hazel Davies, sales and marketing director of Cruden Homes added, “Longniddry South is a very special development in one of the most attractive locations in East Lothian and is a welcome addition to our existing portfolio of new homes in the region. When complete, these unique and beautiful new homes will encapsulate classic village life perfectly. I’m certain this exciting development will become an integral part of the Longniddry community, helping to make the village even more sustainable for and attractive to future generations.”

Work is to begin in August, with the first homes expected to be ready in 2020.
