Shawfair town centre boosted by community campus approval
September 5 2019
Shawfair town centre has taken another step toward delivery following a decision by Midlothian Council to grant planning consent in principle for a new community campus at the heart of the development.
Located just 100m from Shawfair Railway Station the facility is on track to open in time for the 2024/2025 school year and will combine a mix of health, leisure and sporting facilities for residents in addition to a nursery, primary and secondary school.
Nick Waugh, director of Shawfair LLP, commented: “This is excellent news for Shawfair town centre and will provide a vibrant focal point, attracting people from all over the area.
“The town centre is taking shape now. Dandara has become the first housebuilder to begin constructing new homes within the Shawfair ‘ring road’ and we plan to begin initial ground investigations for the eastern section of road shortly. This will run north from the new Millerhill Village bypass – which opened earlier this year - and provide a direct connection with the new campus.”
Shawfair is a 4,000 home new town designed by Optimised Environments at Danderhall, Edinburgh.
