CALA Homes Dunbar Development approved by Council

CALA Homes to build 90 new homes near Belhaven.

A new development in East Lothian has been given the green light to build 90 new homes. CALA Homes’ Beveridge Row site near Belhaven was approved at planning committee, subject to provision of a permanent vehicular access onto Beveridge Row.

The approved detailed plans – in line with Planning Permission in Principle (PPP) awarded in 2014 – include 25% on-site provision of affordable housing amongst a wide mix of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom properties.

Craig Lynes, Land Director at CALA Homes (East), said: “We have worked in dialogue with the planning officials, offering additional clarity around technical, landscape and design matters throughout the processing of the application.

“We are now delighted to see the site get the go-ahead – and the boost to the housing supply as a result will benefit buyers across the local market, as it will also free up the homes of local people moving into the development.”

Approval secures substantial financial contributions for enhancement to Dunbar Grammar School and West Barns Primary School while CALA has pledged improvements to footways on Edinburgh Road to ensure pupils have a safer route to school.

The timeline for development is still to be confirmed; however work could start on site in Spring this year with the first homes complete early 2018.

The properties will include a mixture of detached family homes, cottage style apartments and terraced units – 23 of which will be affordable.
