The intention is not just trying to build houses, we are trying to make this community even more attractive, thriving and integrated within Longniddry. Village character will be maintained through careful and traditional design, making sure that any new houses recognisably and distinctively form a part of Longniddry and East Lothian in general.
Developers Cruden Homes (East) and ZeroC have been selected to take forward delivery of the development of around 450 homes. Socially Conscious Capital, the developers who are master-planning the overall development, and landowner Wemyss and March Estates, will retain a role in checking and approving the detailed designs through a design code. This will ensure the development is delivered in accordance with the principles and commitments made to the local community.
Award-winning Cruden Homes is part of the Cruden Group, one of the most active privately owned companies in East Lothian. Through the Group’s many activities it contributes around £60million per annum into the East Lothian economy and is a strong supporter of the Council’s Construction Skills Academy. As with all its East Lothian sites Cruden Homes will use local apprentices, local contractors and local suppliers wherever possible and has a clear desire to give opportunities to the County’s young people.
ZeroC is a specialist developer focused on creating beautiful and sustainable new places, such as at Poundbury in Dorset or, closer to home, at Chapelton in Aberdeenshire and Tornagrain in Moray. ZeroC is closely affiliated with Castle Rock Edinvar Housing Association as they are both members of the Places for People Group. Places for People is committed to providing more than just housing, and enjoys an unrivalled ability to create aspirational homes and inspirational places.
