Work starts on 100 flats and family homes in East Lothian village just eight miles from Edinburgh

Building firm Cruden has started work on a new housing development in East Lothian that will provide more than 100 homes.

Situated in Wallyford, the £20 million development lies just eight miles from Edinburgh and will see 101 new homes built as part of a wider masterplan development at Wallyford Farm and St Clements Wells Farm.

Cruden Homes (East), part of the Cruden Group, is building 41 homes for private sale and a further 60 affordable homes, comprising 45 units for social rent and 15 for mid-market rent, on behalf of Dunedin Canmore Housing Association.

The private homes will feature two and three bedroom terraced, three bedroom semi-detached and four bedroom detached houses.

Steven Simpson, managing director of Cruden Homes (East), said: “We are pleased to start work at this landmark development in Wallyford. Both private and affordable homes are in such high demand across the country, so bringing over 100 new homes to East Lothian is a highly-anticipated and welcome addition to our existing portfolio of new homes across the region.

“We have a long history of successfully working with Dunedin Canmore Housing Association,” he added.
