Green light for 48 new Linlithgow apartments

MACTAGGART & Mickel has been granted planning permission to build 48 new apartments on a brownfield site at a former petrol filling station in Linlithgow, West Lothian.

The housebuilder described the project as an ‘extremely sustainable and a thoughtful’ reuse of the area, claiming it will boast energy-efficient buildings with photovoltaic panels on the main roofs, gardens along the front of the buildings, landscaping, and and a tree-lined boulevard.

The 48 apartments will be built over two buildings, with eight of them being earmarked for affordable homes. The apartments will comprise a mix of two, three and four-bedrooms, as well as maisonettes. The development is located off Edinburgh Road.

Craig Ormond, director at Mactaggart & Mickel said, “Linlithgow is a great place to live, with a vibrant community, excellent schools and amenities, set in the heart of Scotland. We are pleased to get approval for this development and look forward to transforming an unused and unsightly area of land into much-needed quality housing, in a very convenient town centre location for local people to enjoy. We believe our proposed development will be extremely popular with a range of buyers, including young families and downsizers.”
