Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Bathgate
Our plans also include new pedestrian and cycle links to the existing Bathgate network, 10 acres of green open space, new play areas for children to meet up and play, as well as new bus stops on Sibbalds Brae for added convenience and to encourage sustainable living. Our design for the development also builds on an outline design framework that will integrate Sibbalds Wynd with the existing housing near our boundary.
Our Proposal for Sibbalds Wynd
The development will provide a mix of 190 high quality homes and each new home will include Electric Vehicle Charging Points and Solar PV panels to help reduce the carbon footprint of the development. A significant area of open space will be retained and improved for the use of residents, and we will introduce a green corridor to provide a wildlife link to Little Boghead Nature Park. We will be taking an industry-leading approach to biodiversity on this site, with the introduction of bug hotels, bird and bat boxes, bee-friendly planting and high-quality landscaping throughout.

We believe it’s our responsibility to support our communities, so that people are proud to call them home. That’s why we regularly donate time and money to local causes, and are passionate about investing in the areas we build.
As part of our ongoing commitment to support the local communities where we build, over the years we have worked closely with a number of local primary schools in West Lothian on projects such as Walk to School. We also support local community groups, which recently included a donation to the Whitburn Community Fridge in response to an appeal for help to increase their food stock levels.Sustainability Sustainability We’re committed to building greener, healthier homes for us all. From energy efficient fixtures and fittings, to cutting our carbon emissions, and enhancing existing green spaces, we build sustainability into everything we do.

A spokesperson for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said: “We are very disappointed with the outcome of today’s Planning Committee meeting in relation to our detailed proposals for development at Sibbalds Wynd in Bathgate, which was granted Planning Permission in Principle (PPiP) in February 2020.
“Our proposal was recommended for approval by planning officials, and we will look in-depth at the decision notice in order to understand their decision to refuse our application before confirming our next steps.”
