Property developer Taylor Wimpey East Scotland has secured planning permission for more than 100 new homes in East Lothian.

The housebuilder has been given the green light to build 94 houses and eight flats on land to the west of Greendykes Road in Macmerry.

The site, which will be marketed as Fairfields, consists of agricultural land that is identified for housing in the adopted Local Development Plan.

East Lothian Council intends to take ownership of 26 affordable homes planned for the site once built and would use them for social renting.

The planning application was unanimously approved by councillors on the planning committee.
