Planning permission in principle (PPiP) was received for Longniddry South in June 2018, having been approved at committee in August 2017.

The proposed works to the existing Farm Steading were not included in the PPiP application as they require the conversion and change of use of listed buildings. By necessity, such a development requires applications for detailed planning permission as well as listed building consent. These were lodged in March 2017.

Detailed planning applications will be submitted for various elements of the PPiP. This includes housing proposals by Cruden Homes (East) and ZeroC. Should permission be received it is anticipated that construction will start on site in early 2019.
