New affordable homes making progress in Calderwood

Taylor Wimpey have commenced works on 69 new affordable homes within our Calderwood development. They will provide a mix of two and three-bedroom homes for social rent, which will be available for future customers of Home Group Scotland. 

The overall masterplan at Calderwood incorporates a design that aims to create a sense of place and maximises the latest Scottish Government Planning Policy for ‘Designing Places’ where it aims to integrate with the local area. The development also makes significant contributions towards providing additional local education capacity including the delivery of the new Calderwood Primary School, as well as local transport improvements that are part of Section 75 legal agreement between lead developer Stirling Developments and West Lothian Council.

Sandra Brydon, director of Home Group Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Taylor Wimpey on our first development in West Lothian. The mix of two and three bedroom houses will offer customers affordable living in this popular area – something that has been in demand for a while – and I’m excited to see their development.”

Pauline Mills, land and planning director at Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, said: “We are so pleased that working together with Home Group Scotland to deliver 69 affordable homes is progressing so well. It marks another milestone on the journey towards creating a diverse place to call home that complements the existing local community of Calderwood.

Calderwood Primary School opens

Calderwood Primary School has opened its doors to pupils. 

Our new school is settling in well to Calderwood and fast becoming the hub of the community. 

The site for the new school is at the heart of the emerging Calderwood masterplan development, located adjacent to the new village square (yet to commence) which will consist of retail/housing and mixed use development.  The school forms one edge to the village square and the design was influenced by a necessity for the school building to fulfil the role of a community orientated public building.  The school will be a significant public face of the newly emerging square and Calderwood settlement, and will symbolise a high level of investment in the education for the new population of school pupils, providing a twenty first century contemporary building for the emerging and growing Calderwood population.

Central to the scheme is a double height dining space that offers flexibility for breakout teaching and provides connection to all areas of the school.  The adjacent gymnasium opens up to the dining area, allowing flexibility and movement for larger groups or performances whilst the heller-up seating offers opportunities for smaller groups to gather or learn with views towards the village square.  Classroom accommodation is semi-open plan providing connection with adjacent flexible breakout zones whilst offering views over the landscaped playground. 

We are very proud of the school and look forward to seeing it flourish in the years to come.
