New Winchburgh primary submitted for planning

Plans have been submitted for a new primary school for the Hawkhill area of Winchburgh.

West Lothian Council has validated an application for a proposed new non-denominational primary school, which will have an initial capacity of 231 pupils and 42 early years places.

It is being fully funded by developer contributions to cope with the increasing demand from the growing core development area of Winchburgh, with a flexible design that will allow for future expansion if required.

Work is expected to start in 2024, with pupils attending the new school from August 2025.

Executive councillor for education Andrew McGuire said: “It’s fantastic to see that plans are progressing well for the delivery of another superb new school for the Hawkhill area of Winchburgh.

“With more families choosing to make their home in growing parts of West Lothian such as Winchburgh, it’s essential we have the schools in place to meet the demand for places.”

Development partner Hub South East is delivering the new school on behalf of West Lothian Council, with Morrison Construction as the main contractor and design by jmarchitects, the same team who successfully delivered the Holy Family Primary in Winchburgh and Calderwood Primary in East Calder recently.
