    About the site

    The site lies on the northern boundary of Macmerry and it is currently used as farmland.  The site slopes gently and falls from the south to north gradually.  The proposed development will connect to the village of Macmerry through two vehicular accesses through the existing development at Chesterhall Avenue.

  • Community

    Community benefits

    Community benefits will be established through the planning process, and in our discussions with East Lothian Council we will agree what infrastructure improvements are required as a result of the development of this site.  The additional residents this site will provide for Macmerry should assist in maintaining the viability of the many local facilities.

    We will hold a Public Consultation of our plans to deliver a residential development of new homes on 31 August, 2017 between 2pm-8pm at Macmerry Miners Welfare Club, Main Road, Tranent, and members of the public are encouraged to visit.

    We welcome the opportunity to consult the community of Macmerry, and our team will consider everyone’s views as plans for the development emerge as Pauline Mills, Land and Planning Director comments:  “Public Consultations are an excellent way for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland to engage at an early stage with the community in which it intends to deliver new homes. 

    “This is an important part of the process, and we would encourage as many members of the public as possible to view our proposals.   It is our intention to review all of the feedback that we receive at this event in order to inform our design, prior to submitting a detailed planning application to East Lothian Council later this year following the conclusion of the community consultation process.”
