Housebuilder acquires more land in Wallyford

HOUSEBUILDER Taylor Wimpey East Scotland has acquired land at St Clements Wells to allow a further development of 235 new homes close to its Ravensheugh site in Wallyford.

The firm said it will aim to deliver a further choice of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, and will detail its plans for this development to East Lothian Council around April this year.

Taylor Wimpey will make an application for Approval of Matters Specified by Condition (AMSC), which the business explained will build on the outline design framework for the St Clements Well masterplan, integrating this proposed new development with the existing scheme.

The St Clements Wells masterplan has delivered a new primary school, and will also deliver a proposed new secondary school, local centre and community woodland along with new foot and cycle connections to Wallyford and the local train station. Following completion of the first development of 69 homes, this proposed next phase of Ravensheugh will also form part of the masterplan vision.

Pauline Mills, land and planning director at Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, said, “We are so pleased to have acquired further land at St Clements Wells in Wallyford which cements our commitment to the wider East Lothian area. Interest in our development at Ravensheugh has been strong from homebuyers looking to take advantage of the great location and commutable routes to Edinburgh and the wider area that Ravensheugh offers.

“Securing our future land will ensure that we can continue to play our role in the delivery of new homes as part of the overall masterplan vision that St Clements Wells will deliver.”
