Winchburgh Village is a £ 1 billion development encircling the historic village of Winchburgh seven miles from Edinburgh Airport.
The 347 hectare masterplan, incorporating the existing village, is designed with the environment, safety and security all in mind, ultimately as the destination of choice for your home.
With multiple areas for play and leisure, walkways, cycle paths and areas of outstanding beauty such as the Glendevon Pond and Tippet Knowes Winchburgh Village will preserve the area’s heritage whilst building for the future. Home to badgers, owls, kingfishers and all manner of flora and fauna this development puts the environment first.
And as the development grows so too will multiple amenities and a stunning new Town Centre with additional shops, facilities and places to meet and play.
Importantly Scottish Canals who own and operate the Union Canal will also oversee the building of a marina and moorings in the centre of the Village making this an iconic and beautiful location for leisure activities.
With access to the Canal and numerous existing walkways and cycle paths in addition to those being created, this is an ideal location for those active outdoors.
And for the golfer keen to get a few holes in after work, Niddry Castle Golf Club is a small but challenging course where you’ll be welcomed in as a member or day visitor.
Education has also been foremost in the developers mind, Regenco who are in charge of the overall masterplan have already invested over £2.27 million in local education facilities. In the village itself you’ll find the existing Winchburgh & Holy Family Primary School and as Winchburgh is in the catchment area for Linlithgow Academy, exemplar Secondary Schooling is just a few minutes away.
However mindful that the Village is set for significant expansion the developers, working hand in hand with West Lothian Council are discussing the potential to build both a new primary and secondary school in Winchburgh Village.
Transportation is clearly crucial for modern day living and as well as designing safe routes around the Village and to school, conditional planning permission has been granted for a new rail station and motorway junctions serving Winchburgh Village with, of course, Park and Ride. The timescales for implementation of these transportation links is currently being discussed with the relevant planning and transportation authorities.
But for those keen to work nearer to home, part of the development is allocated to cater for business and commercial development adjacent to the proposed motorway junction.
So with all this planned it’s little wonder two house builders are already on site and with more set to follow your choice of home is all but guaranteed…
