Midlothian development land sold to Miller and Bellway
Two housebuilders have together bought 46 acres of residential development land in Lasswade, Midlothian.
Bellway Homes and Miller were the successful bidders for the site at West Edge Farm, which allows for 325 new homes in total.
Acting on behalf of the local landowner and Wallace Land, Ben Brough of selling agent Savills, said: “As the Edinburgh market hots up and residential development opportunities in the city become increasingly scarce, the ripple-out impact is being felt in good commuter locations.
“West Edge Farm in Lasswade is an excellent commuter spot, close to the bypass, with detailed planning for more than 300 homes, of which a quarter will be affordable. This is just the sort of project the city of Edinburgh needs in order to help meet the growing demand for new family housing.
“Sites close to local amenities, including supermarkets, good schools and local shops, which are served by fast transport links to Edinburgh are in high demand.”
