Rural setting planned

New village planned near university campus

riccartonProposals for a new community adjacent to Heriot-Watt University at Riccarton have been lodged by livestock auctioneering business, H & H Group.

Riccarton Mains Village will provide 200 homes for residents and 200 flats for university students.

It will also go some way to addressing the shortfall in the City’s  five-year housing land supply, delivering much-needed housing. It will include 25% affordable housing provision and university halls of residence

There will be a community centre, supermarket and a variety of services, including a potential new GP surgery. 

H&H Group acquired the land as part of its takeover of John Swan & Son in October last year.

House design will respect the rural character of the area close to Heriot Watt Research Park.
