From infrastructure works to tree planting schemes there’s plenty happening on site at Blindwells this summer! Read on to find out more…

  • Upgrading of route to secondary school and railway station

Hargreaves Land is to shortly commence works to improve pedestrian and cycling access to Preston Lodge Secondary School and Prestonpans railway station.

  • Access road to new school on track

A key component of the Blindwells masterplan is the development of a new Primary School which will serve the educational needs of the local community. Hargreaves is delivering both the access road and the serviced platformed site for the new Blindwells Primary to permit completion of the school by the 2024/25 academic year.

  • Community facility sparks local interest

We are keen to build a thriving community for the residents at Blindwells and we will soon be launching an online community forum to enable communication and organise events.

  • Lochan works underway

Works are underway to create the Lochan which forms part of our masterplan for Blindwells. We are pleased to report that this is on track for completion later this year.

  • ┬áCommunity orchard update

Another exciting addition to the scheme will be a community orchard and allotment space which will be an excellent place for people to come together to plant and cultivate fruit trees and other home grown produce as well as creating a focal point for community activities. This will be progressed at a later stage in the development.

  • Working group formed to bring forward town centre plans

Hargreaves Land has established a new working group to help bring forward exciting plans for the town centre. The design is being developed by a broad professional team which includes engineering, architectural, commercial and planning expertise. We are now actively taking enquiries in conjunction with Culverwell Property Consultants and we are pleased to report interest from a wide variety of interested parties.

  • Tree planting scheme

Thousands of trees, woodland plants and meadow grasslands will be planted at Blindwells later this year as part of an initial phase to create an eye-catching natural landscape, which will be enjoyed by local people and visitors for decades to come
