Ednam, TD5 7QL
Phase 2, Poppleburn Park, Ednam presents an opportunity for development of up to 12 residential units on the outskirts of the village of Ednam, only two miles from the popular Border town of Kelso which offers a good range of facilities including supermarkets, a thriving town centre and a range of social and sporting facilities including a golf course, National Hunt racecourse and a curling rink.
The site extends to approximately 1.5 ha / 3.7 acres.
The site has the benefit of planning permission for a proposed road and plot layout for ten houses – Ref. 04/02341/FUL granted on 10th September 2008.
Since then, the site has been allocated in the Consolidated Scottish Borders Local Plan with an indicative housing capacity of 12 units.
Informal meetings have been held with representatives of Scottish Borders Council and it is thought that:
ﾕﾠA revised layout for 12 houses will be supported.
ﾕﾠAccess is most likely to be achieved using shared surfaces. It is unlikely that there will be a need for open space.
ﾕﾠDeveloper contributions will apply in respect of Affordable Housing and possibly Education.
Phase 1, Poppleburn Park was completed approximately 12 years ago at which time mains services were laid in anticipation of providing connections for Phase 2.
Scotia Gas Networks have indicated a budget cost of ﾣ11,413 for provision of mains gas connections and Scottish Power Networks, who have indicated a budget cost of ﾣ16,248 for electricity connections. Both these figures were on the basis of ten units.
It is understood that Scottish Water have capacity for mains water and for foul and surface water connections.
