Edinburgh's New Neighbourhood

CGI of West Town

Welcome to West Town

West Town is an ambitious vision for a new neighbourhood to be built on a 205-acre site located between Ingliston Park & Ride and the Gogar Roundabout, to the west of Edinburgh.

The projected development follows guidelines set out by the proposed Edinburgh City Plan 2030 and presents the opportunity to meet the housing needs of the nation’s Capital whilst delivering a significant and sustainable urban expansion for the city.

West Town has been highlighted by the proposed Edinburgh City Plan as an essential part of the vision for west Edinburgh to become a “vibrant, high-density mixed-use extension to the city with a focus on place-making, sustainability, connectivity and biodiversity.”

The proposals are to create a mixed-use development as part of a homes-led town centre neighbourhood for the 205-acre site – as well as providing the employment, commercial and community amenity and facilities required for a 20-minute neighbourhood.

West Town Edinburgh Ltd was formed in April 2021 by Drum Property Group to progress development of the 205-acre West Town site in west Edinburgh – widely regarded as one of the most strategically important development areas in Scotland.

Online Public Consultation

West Town Edinburgh Ltd has submitted Proposal of Application Notices (PoANs) to the City of Edinburgh Council for a new homes-led town centre neighbourhood for the 205-acre West Town site, located between Ingliston Park & Ride and the Gogar Roundabout. The PoANs are issued in advance of any public consultation and subsequent planning applications and give an outline intention of West Town Limited’s plan for the site and how local community consultation will be managed.

An online consultation was conducted between May 12 and June 3 and we would like to thank all those who visited our website and completed our online feedback. This initial phase of the consultation is now closed.

We were very pleased with the level of engagement generated by the consultation which provides valuable community feedback to help influence future planning decisions. A further online public consultation event is likely to take place later in the summer.
