The development will be delivered over two phases and will provide a wide range of two and three bedroom terraced and semi-detached homes, four bedroom townhouses as well as three, four and five bedroom detached homes, pocket play spaces for children together with the associated infrastructure required for a development of this scale.

This latest phase of new homes forms a key part of the masterplan development to deliver 477 new homes in total, all set on the outskirts of Penicuik. Two phases of development are already completed, a third is progressing well proving that Penicuik continues to be popular with a wide range of buyers choosing to be part of this growing new community in Midlothian.

Pauline Mills, land and planning director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, said: “We are very pleased to get construction underway at Greenlaw Mains which reinforces our longstanding commitment to our impressive development in Penicuik, and supports our wider involvement in the Midlothian area.

“As one of the largest housebuilders in the UK, we are committed to building more than homes and making sure that we add social, economic and environmental value to the wider communities that we operate in. This includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses from those who choose to live in one of the new homes this development aims to deliver.”

She added: “As well as a great choice of new homes, starting this development will allow us to provide continuity of build from our existing development at Greenlaw Mill, and continue to deliver on a range of economic benefits for the local area including our contributions of over £4.6 million towards improvements to education, community facilities, sporting provision and transport upgrades.”
