Rural setting planned
New village planned near university campus
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.
