Hudson Hirsel secure permission for Coldstream housing estate
Hudson Hirsel has won planning permission for a development of 105 homes in the Borders town of Coldstream.

Leet Haugh, situated on the edge of the Hirsel Estate, seat of the Earls of Home, has been designed by Aitken Turnbull Architects and is intented to reflect “regional vernacular design.”

This sees a collection of “gate lodges” – bungalows, “factors buildings” – detached housing and steading style courtyards enclosed by traditional stone dykes and woodland.

The layout of the estate is intended to engender a sense of place by creating distinct landscaped zones and courtyards.

Henry Birch of Douglas & Angus Estates said: “… the aim at Leet Haugh is to deliver a scheme that will leave behind it a positive long-term legacy of a well designed, well built, environmentally sound development providing homes for Coldstream, by which the 21st Century will be favorably judged”.

Construction is expected to commence by early 2011.
