Learn about our plans for an exciting new community in Ratho Station
We have detailed planning consent from The City of Edinburgh Council for 132 new homes at West Mains in Ratho Station.
Located just off the A8/Glasgow Road, near Edinburgh Airport, our development will provide a choice of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments as well as 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes to suit a range of lifestyles. Throughout the development there will be 25% affordable homes and there will be a choice of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, plus 2 and 3 bedroom homes.
Our plan for Lauder Grove
New footpaths and cycle routes will further enhance the park and encourage more people to socialise and use it, while also ensuring the new community at Lauder Grove can connect with the surrounding local area and its amenities. The addition of Lauder Grove will positively contribute to the commuter village of Ratho Station by creating a well-connected place to live.

Amenities and facilities
Cycling and walking will be encouraged with a network of footpaths and cycleways which will provide easy access to the Ratho Station and the west of Edinburgh. Our development also encourages a healthy and sustainable lifestyle with the provision of green travel options by balancing a reduction in private car parking with the provision of 2 City Car Club spaces.
A secondary active travel access will be provided from Hillwood Rise for use by pedestrians, cyclists and scooter users, as well as allowing for emergency only access to the development.
