BELLWAY Homes has acquired a site outside Edinburgh in a £9 million deal subject to conditions.

The Blindwells site has outline planning consent for 1,600 homes in total and detailed planning permission and associated statutory approvals sought. It is expected that these will be secured in 2020. David Anderson, of Hargreaves, said: “We are delighted to exchange contracts with Bellway in our second conditional sale of land at the Blindwells site. We are encouraged by the level of interest in the site and look forward to bringing further plots to market in the coming year and beyond.”
