New schools to be built as part of new West Lothian homes scheme

New schools to be built as part of new West Lothian homes scheme

More than 3,000 new homes are to be built along with state-of-the-art primary and secondary schools in a multimillion-pound development in West Lothian.

Winchburgh Developments will go ahead after owners West Coast Capital (WCC) agreed a joint venture with Cala Homes for the 347-hectare site.

Sir Tom Hunter, WCC founding partner, said: “Both West Lothian Council and the Scottish Government have played a critical role in securing this long-term development for Scotland.”

The Scottish Government is to provide a £26.8 million loan through the Building Scotland Fund to support the development.

Finance Secretary Derek Mackay visited the side with developers, West Lothian Council and other stakeholders in January. He said: “As we support the continued growth of the Scottish economy, developments like Winchburgh are crucial.”

The Winchburgh development is an example of a joined-up approach between the private sector, Government and local council. It will help stimulate the economy and bring new homes, schools, transport and community facilities to the area.

West Lothian executive councillor for education David Dodds added: “We are delighted to have reached a deal with the Scottish Government and Winchburgh Development Ltd that supports the plans to expand Winchburgh.

“Key to the development is the delivery of new state-of-the-art schools for Winchburgh in the council’s largest ever single capital investment.

“West Lothian already has one of the best school estates in the country, giving a platform to help our young people achieve their full potential and support life-long learning for the whole community.”
