Housebuilder secures 91 acres of land for new Dunfermline neighbourhood

TAYLOR Wimpey East Scotland has acquired 91 acres of land at Halbeath Farm in North Dunfermline.

It signals a ‘key milestone’ in the delivery of its new Whitefields neighbourhood, which will see around 1,400 new properties built, alongside a new primary school, provision for shops and community facilities, new cycleways, and transport infrastructure.

The properties include apartments as well as detached, semi-detached, and terraced homes  – with 25% being affordable.

Pauline Mills, land and planning director at Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, said, “Following our successful acquisition of the land at Wester Whitefield Farm, off Whitefield Road earlier this year, we are pleased to have taken ownership of 91 acres of land at Halbeath Farm.

“As we look to create our new neighbourhood Whitefields, this land will allow us to deliver the planned primary school and local community facilities as outlined in our masterplan vision for the area. 

“Whitefields will be a brand-new community and place to call home in North Dunfermline. It will deliver around 1,400 new homes, create major new infrastructure and include improvements to existing transport links, as well as providing substantial community benefits. Whitefields will also have its roots firmly in North Dunfermline while supporting the existing local communities of Kingseat and Halbeath as its new community develops and grows.”
