AWG and development partner Taylor Wimpey have been promoting an area of land on the eastern side of Peebles capable of housing approx. 200 homes and a business development area of approx. 1 hectare suitable for creating over 60 local jobs. The land is identified in the Local Development Plan for strategic growth but constrained due to technical issues. Solutions to overcome the technical issues have been identified and a planning application is under consideration by Scottish Borders Council that could see development work start in the next couple of years.
Along with Taylor Wimpey we believe there is a strong demand for housing in Peebles having previously developed there over a number of years. The site would also deliver 50 much needed affordable homes for the local community.
