Bilston Phase 2

Seafield Road - Bilston - Midlothian

We are proposing a development of around 180-200 new family homes offering a wide choice of styles to appeal to a range of buyers

  • Overview

    As part of our continued commitment to community engagement, together with Hallam Land Management Ltd, we have hosted a public exhibition of our proposals for the development of land at Seafield Road in Bilston, Midlothian.
    The 8.6 hectare site is identified for housing in the Proposed Midlothian Local Development Plan, and the public exhibition was designed to encourage members of the public to share their views and give feedback before Taylor Wimpey and Hallam prepare a detailed planning application to Midlothian Council.

    Our proposed development area is outlined in the location photograph opposite.

  • 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.

    We are proposing a development of new homes that will consist of:

    *  around 180-200 new homes that will offer a range of house types that will reflect the neighbouring context

    *  a high-quality residential environment with a rich mix of open spaces

    *  a design that is sensitive to neighbouring properties

  • Community Benefits

    We will work alongside Midlothian Council to agree appropriate developer contributions to the wider community as plans for this development progress.

    The development will provide 25% of the new homes as affordable homes.

  • News and Updates

    June 2016
    We have been in detailed discussions with Mid Lothian Council regarding our proposed layout, and we are refining it for our planning submission. We are also carrying out a number of technical studies to support our planning application which should be made later this summer.

    April 2016
    Following our successful public consultation event earlier this year, we are now in the process of preparing our detailed planning application for the development which we hope to be in a position to submit to Midlothian Council during this summer.

    February, 2016
    The Public Exhibition of our plans for Bilston 2 took place on Friday 29 January, 2016 at Bilston Miners Welfare and Social Club, Seafield Road, Bilston, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank those members of the local community who came along to share their views.

    We welcome the opportunity to consult the local community of Bilston and will consider their views as plans for the development are drawn up as Pauline Mills, Land and Planning Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland comments:  “Public Exhibitions are an excellent way for Taylor Wimpey and its partners 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 the feedback that we receive at this event in order to inform our design, prior to submitting a detailed planning application to Midlothian Council following conclusion of the community consultation process.”
