Plans submitted for housing development in Lauder

WHITEBURN Projects has submitted a detailed planning application for a residential development on land accessed from Stow Road in the north of Lauder.

As part of the overall vision for this development, Whiteburn is preparing to deliver a range of 117 new homes offering a mix of three and four-bedroom homes for sale, including affordable homes to rent. 

Roger Bainbridge, director of design and delivery at Whiteburn Projects, said, “It is our aspiration that Allanbank will provide a natural extension to the existing, vibrant community of Lauder, delivering a choice of new homes that will appeal to local people or those who want to enjoy the fantastic quality of life, living in the Scottish Borders offers. Our two public consultation events provided helpful feedback from various members of the local community who took the time to share their views and suggestions. 

“We’ve been able to consider these views as our plans for the development have evolved, as well as work with Scottish Borders Council throughout the pre-application process. We are now excited to be able to submit a robust set of proposals that we believe will create fabulous new neighbourhood for Lauder.”

Eve McCurrich, MD of Whiteburn Projects, added, “Our key objective is to build a development which not only offers a variety of homes for local people at all stages of life but create a great place for people to live. This planning application is a real milestone for this development, and we are excited to finally be in a position to make progress and demonstrate our commitment towards the delivery of new homes in Lauder.”
