Plans unveiled for over 100 homes in Aberlady

Cruden HomesProposals have been put forward by Cruden Homes to deliver 105 homes at Aberlady.

A Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) has been lodged with East Lothian Council signalling the intent to lodge a planning application following a period of community consultation for the proposed site lying to the west of Aberlady.

Currently owned by Wemyss and March Estate, the site is due to be allocated in the emerging Draft East Lothian Local Development Plan for “circa 100 new homes, access, infrastructure and open space”.

The local councillors and Gullane Area Community Council and Aberlady Community Association have also been sent a copy of the PAN.

A prerequisite of the proposal is to provide a new link through the site to connect Kirk Road with the A198. This will use the existing priority junction at The Pleasance to avoid traffic having to pass Aberlady primary school when coming to or leaving from the new housing area.

This new junction will also minimise the disruption to protected trees along the roadside boundary, which are an important part of the character of the coastal route and the approach to Aberlady village.

Commenting on the proposals, Fraser Lynes from Cruden Homes said: “Given our companies history in East Lothian and ongoing ties, we are delighted to be bringing forward proposals for a new development in Aberlady, which we will be going out for public consultation on.

“It is clearly positive that the site has been allocated for housing in the draft Local Development Plan and we want to ensure, through this consultation process, that the views of the local community help shape the proposals going forward.”
