Gullane fire training college to make way for 125 homes
June 7 2016
An illustrative master plan prepared by Barton Willmore includes the provision for up to 95 new build flats and houses as well as 30 apartments within a retained Henderson House, an historic mansion previously used as offices.
The master plan has been conceived as a series of gridded perimeter blocks in a bid to meld with the existing development pattern of Gullane, with a central open space intended to serve as a children’s play area.
Andrew Fleming, associate planner at Barton Willmore’s Edinburgh office commented: “East Lothian Council had originally wanted to include an element of employment land and tourism use on the site, however, we were able to demonstrate to the Council that such uses were not practical or viable and that there was a clear logic to the redevelopment of this brownfield site within the settlement boundary for residential development.”
The 4 hectare site will now be sold on the open market with permission in place with a view to appointing a developer to bring forward detailed design proposals.
