Avant seeks to build 92 new homes in Tranent

AVANT Homes Scotland has acquired a 9.25-acre site in Tranent to deliver a new 92-home development.

Called Thistle Meadows and located off Winton Court in the town, the £31 million development will comprise a mix of three, four, and five-bedroom properties.

Thistle Meadows will form part of the Windygoul South Masterplan. This includes the expansion of the Windygoul primary and secondary school campus, as well as improvements and upgrades to the local allotment areas, footpath networks, sports pitches, and transport network.

Subject to planning, work will start in May. A show home is scheduled to open in November and the first residents are expected to move into their new homes in early 2025.

Jim Wilkinson, Avant Homes Scotland MD, said, “Our Thistle Meadows site acquisition represents an exciting opportunity for us to expand our development footprint into Tranent. As a housebuilder, we want to build quality new homes for everyone and this site is an ideal location for us to deliver our range of practically designed, energy-efficient homes in a place people want to live.

“We look forward to East Lothian Council considering our plans to deliver a new and thriving community within the town.”
