Sale Price: Offers are invited

The development site occupies a strategic location adjacent to the link road leading to the Queensferry Crossing and can be accessed by traffic traveling both north and south. The Queensferry Crossing has an average vehicle count of 80,000 vehicles per day. Meaning the location of this site is unrivalled and offers purchasers a chance to acquire one of the best road side developments in Scotland.
The town of South Queensferry lies 10 miles to the north west of Edinburgh on the shore of the Firth of Forth. It is an extremely popular location given its excellent road connectivity, good schools, local amenities and attractive coastal setting. The location also appeals to many who commute to nearby Edinburgh, West Lothian and Fife. South Queensferry town centre lies approximately 1.1 km to the north east of the site, with the closest rail station situated at Dalmeny, 1.5km to the east.


The development site is part of a larger residential development led by CALA homes. This development will deliver up to 980 new homes and will also include a new primary school and a care home which are located at the heart of the masterplan, on the civic street in close proximity to the commercial area and the existing community.
The approved masterplan proposal for the site will bring forward the requirements of the 2016 Planning Consent (Ref: 16/01797/PPP), plus additional uses of care home, discount foodstore, petrol filling station and kiosk and two F&B units.  The landscape led masterplan will provide an integrated and diverse new neighbourhood that offers a strong extension to the existing community of South Queensferry.  The location of the development site will provide excellent connections to public transport from the proposed bus route from the realigned Builyeon Road and to the 80,000 average daily vehicles that use the Queensferry Crossing.
