Planning in principle sought for Riccarton Mains Village
November 10 2016
Led by landowner H&H Group Riccarton Mains Village will involve provision of 200 homes, 200 student flats, a community centre and supermarket on 12 hectares of land using designs intended to respect the area’s ‘rural character’.
Brian Richardson chief executive of H&H Group plc said: “This development is in one of the most sustainable locations in Edinburgh and is well connected for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as being well-served by public transport, reducing the impact on the local road network.
“We are also pleased to be bringing forward community facilities, including the potential for a new GP surgery which was one of the key issues raised at the consultation events we held.”
The village also sits close to the Oriam Centre, a sports performance hub which will eventually be joined by a 160-bed hotel and possible film studio.
