Development at Straiton West

Welcome to this consultation website for the proposed mixed use development at the allocated site of Ec3, located adjacent to Straiton Park and Ride, Loanhead.


Welcome to this public consultation process relating to proposals by Straiton Park Ltd for land in its ownership adjacent to the Straiton Park and Ride, Midlothian. The Proposal of Application Notice boundary is shown in red on the plan to the right, however the proposed development does not cover the whole of this area.

The site has been allocated for development for a number of years, and benefits from an allocation in the Midlothian Local Development Plan for a mix of uses including commercial and residential development.
