South Scotstoun South Queensferry

South Scotstoun - South Queensferry - Edinburgh - City of Edinburgh - EH30 9YD

Our proposals aim to provide a range of 2,3,4 and 5 bedroom homes, as well as 1 and 2 bedroom apartments on an attractive greenfield site in South Queensferry. Subject to planning being granted we hope to begin work on-site in 2017.

  • Overview

    We are preparing proposals for a new development of 339 high-quality detached, semi-detached, terraced homes and apartments on land adjacent to the A90, South Scotstoun, South Queensferry.  The site we are proposing for our new development is outlined in red on the map pictured right. The blue boundary outlines land that may be subject to future development. 

     Under our proposals, we would provide a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments with off-street parking and landscaped gardens. A proportion of the new properties would be made available as affordable homes for local people in housing need. We also intend to provide a mixture of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes on our development.

  • About the site

    This is a greenfield site, historically known as the Dark Entries to the south of South Queensferry. It incorporates part of the national cycle network and it retains historical landscape features. Main access to be taken from B800 Kirkliston Road with secondary access from Provost Milne Grove.

  • What's proposed?

    We are proposing new housing, landscaping, roads infrastructure and services.  Our development proposal outlines a mixture of detached, semi-detached,  and terraced homes, as well as three and four storey apartment blocks.

    The proposed development will also integrate a dedicated pedestrian and cycle link from the National Cycle Network in the east through the site to the west.  There will also be local transport improvements to ensure the site is well-integrated into the local transport network, with specific local improvements to be agreed with City of Edinburgh Council.

    Pedestrian and vehicle access to the site from both the B800 and Provost Milne Grove is proposed, which will enable greater access to local cycle and pedestrian routes, including the historic 'Dark Entries' tree-lined avenue.

    Latest news
    As part of our continued commitment to community engagement, we have completed the second Public Exhibition of our detailed proposals for the proposed development of new homes at South Scotstoun, South Queensferry. 

    Public Exhibitions are hosted to encourage members of the public to share their views and give feedback before Taylor Wimpey East Scotland makes a detailed application to The City of Edinburgh Council later this year.
    The second event was held in South Queensferry Community Centre, and it was very well attended with over 150 people taking the opportunity to come along to share their views, and give their reaction to the changes and refinements that have been made following the first public consultation event that was held in September last year.
    We welcome the opportunity to consult directly with the community of South Queensferry and the wider local area, and we are confident this proposed development will bring a number of positives for the local area as Pauline Mills, Land and Planning Director comments:  “We were really delighted to see that so many members of the local community took the time to come along to our second public consultation event.  It gave those who attended, whether they were aware of our proposed plans or not, the opportunity to see how we’ve taken on board some of the comments that we received at our first public consultation event. 

    “Public Exhibitions are an excellent way for us to listen to the views of the community in which we intend to deliver new homes, and these events and wider community consultation with local stakeholders have been an important part of the process as we refine our detailed proposals for the land at South Scotstoun.  We will now review all the feedback from this final community consultation event in order to fully inform the design of our proposals for the development. 

    ”Our proposed development at South Scotstoun is allocated for housing within the Edinburgh Local Development Plan, and it aims to deliver 339 new homes in a wide mix of tenures to appeal to a range of potential buyers, including 25% affordable homes.

    “The range of potential benefits of the development are wide ranging and will include a contribution to education, additional provision of car parking at Dalmeny Station, and transport improvements within the immediate local area.

    “As well as an impressive range of new homes, our development would provide a range of economic benefits for the local South Queensferry area which includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses.

    “We believe this development would be a great addition to the local area, and complements our other developments across the region.”
