Plans lodged for build of 1,800 homes on West Lothian poultry farm

PLANS have been unveiled for the build of 1,800 homes at a poultry farm complex in West Lothian.

Elan Homes (Scotland) is behind the proposals, which would see 25% of the homes be affordable. The site, at Drumshoreland Garden Community, is located east of Livingston and owned by Elan Homes’ sister company, Amber Rei.

The firm said the development will create a high-quality, low-carbon mixed-use development set within a substantial new parkland setting – including 19.9 hectares of ancient woodland being given over to public access.

Elan Homes added that the development will act as a ‘catalyst’ to deliver an investment packaging in the Scottish agriculture and food sector in excess of £100 million. The plan includes the redevelopment of an existing feed mill at Edinburgh Airport and new sustainable farming space across West Lothian.

A virtual public consultation will be hosted by Elan Homes on Thursday October 22 from 12pm to 8pm. The event can be accessed by clicking here.
