Redheughs Village is located within a 139 acre (56 ha) site at the north end of the Garden District and will form the first important phase of the new community delivering up to 1,350 new homes and will include over 330 new affordable homes.
This new village will be ideally placed to provide a mixture of housing types, densities and tenures to support the nearby business communities at Edinburgh Park, The Royal Bank of Scotland World Headquarters and the International Business Gateway, all of which are within walking and cycling distance. The site benefits from unrivalled public transport links with 5 tram stops and 2 mainline rail stations in close proximity. Future plans include enhanced bus services and cycling and pedestrian links.
Community facilities will include a new primary school and neighbourhood centre providing convenience shopping which will support this first and adjacent phases. A planning application in principle was submitted in September 2015 and approved at committee in June 2016. Following a 'call-in' in July 2016, the Scottish Government's decision is anticipated in Spring 2019.
