Shawfair LLP to host community information morning in Danderhall

Shawfair LLP, the developer responsible for the Shawfair development on the edge of Edinburgh and Midlothian, is set to host a community information event on Saturday morning (13 February) at Danderhall Leisure Centre. The informal drop in session will be open to members of the public from 9am – 12pm.

Local residents, individuals and businesses are invited to find out more about the overall vision for the development, hear about proposed timescales, meet the project team and discover more about the benefits Shawfair will bring to existing and future communities in the area.

Shawfair is the largest urban expansion project in Edinburgh and Midlothian and there is a busy programme of activity already underway. The first phase of housing development has commenced at the Millerhill site to the south-east side of Shawfair and the first of 170 homes are expected to be available from late 2016.

At the other side of Shawfair, house-building will start at Danderhall South near to the existing Danderhall community in early 2017. This site will contain approximately 440 houses, to be built over the next five years.

Nick Waugh, Director of Shawfair LLP, commented: “We are at an exciting point in the development of Shawfair and are pleased to be able to share information about our plans with the local community. I would encourage anyone who is interested in the development and the benefits it will bring to drop in and join us for a cup of tea and a chat.

“Shawfair, when complete, will be the third largest town in Midlothian and will create an entirely new, self-sufficient community with modern high quality homes, schools, offices, leisure and amenity facilities, retail outlets and landscaped outdoor space. We are delighted to be able to share our vision for this innovative development.”
