A highly anticipated housing development, which will meet soaring market demand in Livingston, has been given the green light by West Lothian Council.
Local councillors voted strongly in favour of plans lodged by Dundas Estates to build 266 new homes at Uphall Station, marking the housebuilder’s first Livingston development in nearly a decade.
Uphall Station Village will comprise one and two bedroom apartments and three, four and five bedroom detached, semi-detached and terraced homes, as well as 20 affordable plots.
The site is well-connected to local transport options, sitting in proximity to the M8 and the nearby Uphall Station railway station. With excellent train links to Edinburgh in just 15 minutes, and Glasgow in 50 minutes, the location is particularly desirable for commuters.
In addition to the properties, plans for the development include a unique Community Hub, which will be located at the heart of Uphall Station Village and will contribute to providing a sense of place and building community spirit. The development is also attached to a core path leading to Almondvale Park, further connecting residents to green public space and the wider countryside.
Bruce Dunlop, Managing Director of Dundas Estates, said: “We’re very pleased by this decision from local councillors as we believe this development will bring real benefits to the local area, while also helping to ease market demand, which is currently at an all-time high.
“Uphall Station Village will provide homes that will meet the needs of a wide demographic, including a range of apartments for first time buyers and downsizers, and an excellent mix of properties for growing families, as well as affordable housing options.
“The development’s close connections to open green space and commuter links will also be hugely beneficial for buyers, and the inclusion of the Community Hub will provide the opportunity to create a social environment among residents.”
Work is due to start on the site in February and sales are expected to launch in the spring.
