Picturesque Longniddry expansion extols village virtues
July 5 2019
Cruden Homes have won planning consent from East Lothian Council to significantly extend the village of Longniddry through the addition of 81 new homes.
The first phase of a wider expansion masterplan the development features a range of classically-inspired properties designed by Halliday Fraser Munro and Ben Pentreath which are said to draw inspiration from local precedents to create homes which are at once picturesque, characterful and archetypal.
Belying quaint appearances Cruden will adopt a fabric-first approach to the construction to maximise the building performance and will include solar panels discreetly integrated into roofs. A wildlife corridor will also be formed along Braid’s Burn.
These will be delivered as part of a wider 450 home masterplan as set out by Socially Conscious Capital and Taylor Architecture & Urbanism which has been inspired by the principles laid down at Knockroon by The Princes Foundation.
Hazel Davies, sales and marketing director of Cruden Homes commented: “When complete, these unique and beautiful new homes will encapsulate classic village life perfectly.”
It is expected that work will get underway in the autumn for completion by 2020.
