    About the site

    Along with Hallam Land Management, we control a 45 hectare (ha) area of land on the west/northwest fringe of Bilston in Midlothian.  This 8.6ha site is currently arable land and it forms part of this wider area.  Seafield Road forms the site's southern boundary and there are properties and planting to the eastern and western boundaries.  The northern boundary is defined by a hedgerow.

    The proposed development is within easy walking distance of the new Bilston Primary School, the local shops within Bilston itself.
