Our Vision

Our vision for Blindwells is the creation of a high quality and successful place, which creates a thriving community that people will feel proud to be part of.

A key driver behind our vision is quality placemaking. From early investment in infrastructure and local amenities, through to the delivery of high quality green open spaces with integrated active travel, cycle and footway connections throughout. Our aim is to build a legacy development with its own identity where people really want to live. 

The new homes at Blindwells will provide the best of modern living, incorporating high quality designs and materials for an enduring appeal. The neighbourhood will incorporate a new local centre and provide opportunities for commercial development. 

We will integrate leisure opportunities to help facilitate healthy lifestyles with extensive walking, cycling and running routes around and throughout the site, all tied together with a clear landscape strategy.

This will be achieved by responding to the existing landscape structure and topography of the site to create a safe and pleasant new settlement, which both reflects the history and character of the location and allows for future expansion.

We believe that the landscape strategy at Blindwells will be a critical component to its long term success and popularity. 

Our strategy includes:

  • Strong landscape edges along the A1 and railway corridor.
  • Creation of a new park which will be a focal point for the neighbourhood and link the masterplan area with future development.
  • New green spaces and connections linking the residential pockets of the new neighbourhood with the local centre and lochan to the north.
  • Pocket parks within the residential neighbourhoods which will provide opportunities for smaller more intimate parks and play areas suitable for younger children. The new neighbourhood will also provide a new network of footpaths and cycleways through the open spaces, which will increase connectivity within the masterplan and to the wider surrounding area.
