In September 2016, East Lothian Council approved its Proposed Local Development Plan.
This sets out where new development should and should not occur, including housing, education, economic and retail development, new transport links, and other infrastructure.
The Proposed Plan (PDF page 25) states that “land at Longniddry South is allocated for a settlement expansion of circa 450 homes plus associated employment development, a small local centre, community facilities and infrastructure.” See Planning Context.
Socially Conscious Capital has submitted an application for Planning Permission in Principle for a mixed-use development located to the south of the existing village around Longniddry Farm. This is to establish the acceptability of the principle of development and is supported by a comprehensive Design Statement (PDF).
Should planning permission be received, further detailed planning applications will follow for the various elements of the development.
