By John-Paul Clark

Developers have been approved to build over 100 new homes in West Lothian.

West Lothian Council granted permission to Taylor Wimpey on Monday September 6.

The new site in Winchburgh is part of the masterplan to turn the village into a new town.

The latest build at Millcraig Place will see the erection of 101 residential units with associated infrastructure, landscaping and ancillary works.

The planning application shows the new housing estate will feature three and four bedroom properties, and two bedroom cottage flats.

The case officer on the planning application said: “This is the final parcel of development land fronting the new Winchburgh Park and lies between the Barratt development to the north and the Bellway development to the south. The land is set aside for residential development and is located on ground re-modelled under an earlier decision for infrastructure works including earth works, platforming and formation of temporary site access roads.

“The design and layout of the proposed development is acceptable and meets the council’s standards in respect of road infrastructure, parking and landscaping.

“The development is acceptable subject to appropriate conditions and accords with the overall CDA masterplan.”
