150 new homes for Brotherton Farm, Livingston, West Lothian

Jan 15, 2016


Gladman, on behalf of the landowner, has successfully promoted this 12.4 hectare site for the development of around 150 new homes.

An application for planning permission in principle was submitted to West Lothian Council in September 2014.  The proposal was amended to allow for some design and layout changes and the final scheme for determination included around 150 new family homes (15% affordable), set within a generous network of public open space and landscape planting.

The application was refused by West Lothian Council in March 2015.

Gladman lodged an appeal to Scottish Ministers in June 2015, addressing each reason for refusal by written submissions.

Scottish Ministers issued a Notice of Intention to allow the appeal and grant planning consent in December 2015, subject to a legal agreement to cover the matters of affordable housing, education infrastructure, public art, cemetery contribution, active open space, and road safety improvements.

It is anticipated that planning consent will be granted in April 2016, thereafter the site will be marketed and development can commence.
