SHP (Scott Hobbs Planning) have been appointed as planning consultants on behalf of Alba Developments, to bring forward the proposed residential development of allocated housing site H-WF1 at Westfield, West Lothian. Implemented planning permission has been in place since 2010 for 550 houses on site (reference 1013/FUL/07). Working alongside EMA Architects, SHP have begun submitting planning applications for initial small-scale phases of the overall allocated site, based on a revised masterplan which largely reflects the implemented planning permission, although brought up to date in line with LDP policies and supplementary planning guidance. This approach will allow the market credentials of the site to be tested with the housebuilding industry, providing the Applicant with much-needed certainty, and the confidence to progress with the subsequent applications. To date, planning applications for Phases A2, A3 and A4 have been submitted by SHP to West Lothian Council.
In addition, a Proposal of Application Notice has recently been submitted by SHP, relating to Phase B of the overall development, comprising the remainder of the allocated site. In accordance with the latest government guidance regarding Covid-19, an online public consultation event is proposed for August 2020.
