Avant Homes is set to bring 312 homes to Edinburgh, after planning permission was granted by The City of Edinburgh Council for a new £71m development.

Named The Lanes, the 20-acre site, which is situated just off The Wisp, forms part of the first phase of homes in Alba Developments' masterplan to create over 700 new-build homes across the 68-acre former Edmonstone House and Estate.  

The development will feature a selection of two-bedroom apartments, and two, three, four and five-bedroom semi-detached and detached homes across 14 of Avant Homes' signature design-led house designs. The first homes are due to be ready for occupation in early 2023. 

Of the 312 new-build homes, more than 25 per cent have been designated for affordable housing. In addition to delivering new homes for Edinburgh, Avant Homes has also committed to a community contribution of £1.8m to support local education provision. 

Avant Homes Scotland managing director, Gerry Leitch, said: "The Lanes is an incredibly exciting new development for us. We're very pleased to have secured planning approval to deliver 312 new homes in such a prestigious location and make our own contribution to the wider development of the Edmonstone Estate.

"Works are set to commence in the coming weeks, and we look forward to creating a highly desirable development for Edinburgh buyers."
