Planning permission granted for new housing scheme in West Lothian with over 200 houses and flats

Daily Record logoDaily Record 5 days ago John-Paul Clark

Planning permission has been granted on a new development with over 200 houses and flats in West Lothian.

The developers Bellway Homes Ltd (Scotland East) & Gladman Developments will build 179 houses, 32 flats with roads, paths, landscaping and associated works.

An amendment to the original planning permission, to build another four houses, was approved on February 15 by West Lothian Council.

The developers are planning a wide range of homes, including cottage flats and terraced and semi-detached houses at the site on Gregory Road, Kirkton Campus, in Livingston.

Livingston Village Community Council were in favour of the proposal but have expressed concerns about education provisions in the area, roads and traffic volume and the safety over the proposed pond that is to be built in the new housing scheme.

Craig McCorriston, head of planning, economic development and regeneration, said: “The layout and design of the development provides for an efficient use of the land which lies within walking distance of Livingston town centre.

“An area of open space has been provided within the development to act as a public park of 1ha in size and details of a community building have been prepared for future development.

“While acoustic barriers are required to mitigate against road noise, these can be well landscaped and integrated within the existing mature landscaping adjacent to the site.

“The proposals therefore accord with the terms of the adopted West Lothian Local Development Plan, 2018 and there are no material considerations to indicate that the application should not be granted.”
