If approved, land will also be earmarked for a primary school, a neighbourhood centre including a pub/restaurant, community centre, retail, health centre and start-up offices.

The 78.4-hectare mixed-use development - comprising affordable housing - is part of the wider Heartlands Masterplan from Green Town (Heartlands) Ltd.

Heartlands is one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe with £650 million being invested residentially and commercially, transforming the area to the west of Whitburn, The Daily Record reports.

The land at Heartlands forms a key part of the masterplan development to deliver around 2000 new homes and commercial space, as well as retail and leisure facilities.

An application for outline planning permission for integrated business, residential and golf-courses development; also including hotel, leisure, community and visitors’ facilities, forestry planting, landscaping, road construction, motorway junction and transport interchange’ was granted in May 2006. This established the development area for up to 5,000 new homes.
