A planning application by Dundas Estates to develop 140 flats in Musselburgh has been added to the East Lothian Council register.
Sitting just at the edge of the town centre, the redevelopment of the former Brunton Wire Works site will complete the urban grain of the block contained by Mall Avenue and Inveresk Road. Comprising 140 one, two and three-bedroom flats, the development will be designed in a modern, contemporary style that integrates well with the site’s current surroundings.
In partnership with Tesco, East Lothian Council and NHS Lothian, Dundas Estates secured planning consent to regenerate the site, and Outline Planning Permission was granted on 25 September 2008 for the erection of a new Tesco store; a primary health care centre; residential development; and a care home for the elderly with associated supported housing and a day centre.
Bruce Dunlop, Managing Director of Dundas Estates, said: “In autumn 2016, in advance of lodging the detailed planning application, Michael Laird Architects presented our designs for the residential development to the Community Council and the plans were well received. A planning application was lodged for the flats in December 2016 and we’re pleased that the Council will now commence the process of determining it.
“We think the development will be a fantastic addition to the community, providing quality housing in a currently under-used area, while also fitting seamlessly into its new setting.”
The site is served by nearby community facilities, including Musselburgh Grammar School, Musselburgh Burgh Primary School, Musselburgh Primary Care Centre, and the Tesco supermarket. The development is also well-connected to main routes in and out of town, and Musselburgh High Street is just two minutes away.
