1500 new homes
Hatton village plan aiming to ease housing shortage
Plans for the new village will be considered by councillors
A new village with up to 1,500 homes is being planned for a site between Dalmahoy and Ratho to help meet the demands of Edinburgh’s growing population.
Investors Inverdunning and planning consultancy Clarendon are behind the Hatton village project on what is currently greenbelt land off the A71.
It would be built around a village hub with retail, business, leisure, education and community facilities set within a public open space and landscaping.
The developers say it will provide much-needed family housing, including 300-375 affordable homes to cater for part of Edinburgh’s housing growth requirements over the next decade. The strategic plan for south-east Scotland has outlined targets for 50,000 new homes in Edinburgh by 2030.
The village would take eight to ten years to complete with around 100-150 house completions expected per year and the village infrastructure and transport links built as part of earlier phases.
