The site, which will be marketed as Sinclair Gardens, consists of brownfield land that is identified for housing in the adopted Local Development Plan. Planning in Principle (PPP) was already in place.

The housebuilder said Sinclair Gardens represents a significant investment in the local area, and it will deliver a range of two, three, four and five bedroom homes in a variety of styles and sizes.

The development will also include a provision of 25% affordable homes, and it will also make significant contributions of over £3.6 million towards local education, transport and community facilities, which have been secured by a Section 75 legal agreement with Midlothian Council.

Pauline Mills, land & planning director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, added: “We are delighted to confirm that we have secured a detailed planning permission for the development of land off Main Street in Roslin.

“As well as an impressive range of new homes, Sinclair Gardens will provide a range of economic benefits for the local Midlothian area, which includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses.

“Sinclair Gardens follows our strong track record of delivering excellent quality developments of family homes across the local area including Greenlaw Mill in Penicuik, Harvieston Park in Gorebridge and our latest development, which will open soon, at Pentland Green, Bilston.”
