St Andrews West masterplan takes shape with first homes
December 17 2021
A major expansion of St Andrews, Fife, has taken shape with the submission of detailed plans for the first 96 homes.
Billed as an urban extension to the town the plan will deliver 900 homes including business and employment land when complete, through a mix of terraced, semi-detached houses, flats and maisonettes.
Joint venture backers Headon and S1 Developments stress the sustainable nature of their development to assuage concern over new build development on the outskirts of town. Measures include low carbon technologies and biodiverse landscaping within a network of shared streets and dedicated cycle lanes under the direction of Studio LBA.
A green travel corridor sits at the heart of the scheme to both connect neighbourhoods and provide continuous social amenity space.
Joe Headon, director at Headon S1 St Andrews West, said: “Our vision for St Andrews West has evolved over many years and this phase aims to deliver an exemplar new urban development, with a long-term commitment to the town and community.
“While being an exciting new contemporary design, our proposals have been undertaken with clear regard to the sensitivities of placing this development on the outskirts of such a historic town. The design has been developed through careful studies, analysis and gaining an understanding of the wider context of St Andrews."
Should planning approval be forthcoming work could start on site next summer.
