Delivering the Vision for East Lothian’s Newest Community

May 13, 2021

Hargreaves Land is the proud owner and developer of Blindwells. Blindwells is a planned new community in the heart of East Lothian which has some of Scotland’s finest coast and countryside. Historically, a large part of the site was an open cast mine. In 2017 approval was given for the vision to create a new high quality and sustainable community. Hargreaves Land has successfully transformed the site which is now ready to deliver 1,600 private and affordable homes.

Bellway and Cruden are already constructing the first of the new houses and plans are advanced for Persimmon to begin on site. The vision will create a new community with great facilities and delivers an extremely high quality of life.

Facilities include:

  • Around 30% of the land kept as green space – an area bigger than Princes Street Gardens.
  • The new Princes Loch and pathways for walking and cycling will add interest to the stunning new parkland.
  • A new town centre to create a thriving new community as a ’20-minute neighbourhood’.
  • A brand new primary school, healthcare ‘hub’ and new shops that will serve the new community.

East Lothian is famed for giving its residents a high quality of life and Blindwells has been carefully planned to provide an excellent environment for families to enjoy.
