Scotia Homes submits 117-home plan for Forfar
Scotia Homes has lodged plans for 117 properties in Forfar.
The Ellon-based company has submitted an application with Angus Council for farmland at Westfield, currently adjacent to Westfield Loan.
Scotia’s proposal includes a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes, with affordable housing making up 25% of the development.
The firm could start work on site later next year if planning permission is granted.
They say a green light would bring major inward investment and employment opportunities, as well as supporting apprenticeships during the construction phase.
In October 2022, Scotia submitted a proposal of application notice for the project.
It marked the start of a 12-week period for locals to have their say on the proposals. Two public consultation events were held at the East and Old Parish Church.
The Westfield plan is laid out on a project website. Scotia Homes development lead Lesley Lindsay said: “The feedback received, alongside the various technical studies has informed our proposals.
“I am delighted to confirm we have submitted a planning application to Angus Council.
“We were encouraged with the level of interest in our proposals since we began consulting last year.
“We are pleased with the level of feedback received from the local community and prospective buyers.
“We will continue to engage with the local community groups and interested stakeholders as we progress our plans.”
