Blindwells Settlement

East Lothian, Taylor Wimpey and East Lothian Council

Blindwells in East Lothian is currently the preferred site for a new settlement to address projected population increases. The aim will be to create a diverse, mixed, attractive and sustainable new settlement of up to 6,000 new homes with associated infrastructure and facilities including primary, secondary and possibly tertiary education facilities, retail, employment land, community facilities, and leisure.

OPEN has been involved in undertaking site assessment, research and appraisals as well as facilitating a critical series of workshops with officers from many parts of the Council. The purpose has been to assess what kind of place the new settlement could be, what it might look like, and what it might bring to East Lothian as a whole. Design and delivery of the new settlement will be a long and complicated process and masterplanning is just beginning.
