Winchburgh is one of West Lothian’s Core Development Areas, and is located just outside Edinburgh. The 347 hectare site will deliver 3450 new homes, new schools and a range of infrastructure including improved transport links, a rail station, a new marina, a 75 acre district park and 35 acres of employment land. The first phase of 588 homes is complete and Winchburgh Developments Limited will deliver the remaining parts of the overall masterplan which includes some 700 affordable houses, of which 520 will be available for social rent in order to ease pressure on housing needs across West Lothian.
Staff at OPEN have been working on the master plan for the settlement expansion since 2004 and in more recent years on further masterplanning review and delivery exercises including detailed design of infrastructure, the 30 hectare Auldcathie district park and construction of key public realm spaces.
