Taylor Wimpey acquires land for next development at Winchburgh
Taylor Wimpey East Scotland has confirmed the land for its next development of private and affordable homes in Winchburgh has been acquired.
Located near Beatlie Road in Winchburgh, this land is expected to deliver 190 new homes, and forms part of the wider Winchburgh masterplan that when complete will deliver at least 3,800 new homes, improved transport links, employment opportunities, and state-of-the-art schools.
This impressive masterplan also provides stunning new outdoor spaces and local amenities that include a new canal marina, the new Auldcathie District Park, as well as a new motorway junction, which is now under construction.
Seton Rise will provide 171 two, three four and five-bedroom private homes, as well as 19 affordable homes in a mix of two and three-bedroom terraced homes together with the associated infrastructure such as roads, parking and open space that is required for a development of this scale.
This location is ideally situated to appeal to a wide range of buyers within the overall masterplan vision for Winchburgh, offering the perfect balance of quiet rural life with the convenience of Edinburgh close by.
The new homes planned for Seton Rise will also enjoy convenient connections to great local amenities and areas of open space.
Pauline Mills, land and planning director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, said: “We are delighted to have acquired the land to deliver our Seton Rise development, and we are looking forward to continuing to play our part in the delivery of the Winchburgh masterplan.
“Once planning approval has been secured, as well as an impressive range of new private and affordable homes, Seton Rise will provide a range of economic benefits for the local Winchburgh area which includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses from those who choose to live in one of the new homes this development aims to deliver.”
John Hamilton, chief executive, Winchburgh Developments Ltd, added: “This latest acquisition by Taylor Wimpey is another vote of confidence in Winchburgh. Throughout the project we’ve been building on the strengths of the existing community, not just building houses. Taylor Wimpey’s Seton Rise will coincide with the completion of a range of fantastic local facilities and amenities that will appeal to new residents looking to settle in a strong community.”
