- Macmerry, East Lothian
Clarendon have recently submitted a detailed planning application on behalf of Euro Garages Ltd for roadside services including petrol filling station and associated retail and drive-through restaurants at Macmerry Junction on the A1 in East Lothian. This commercial development sits on the former Raceland karting track and is located on the outer edge of the wider Blindwells development area.
- Gavieside, Livingston, West Lothian
Clarendon prepared an application for Planning Permission in Principle (with Masterplan) on behalf of the landowner and are now working with Springfield Properties ahead of lodging of the application in late 2018. The proposals comprise up to 2,500 new homes along with a new village hub, commercial land, site for a new primary school, extensive new open space and parkland and transport improvements.
- Hatton Village, Edinburgh
Clarendon are preparing planning and design studies for Inverdunning (Hatton Mains) Ltd to support a new village for approximately 1,200 to 1,500 new homes plus village centre, west of Edinburgh. This new village can contribute towards Edinburgh's future housing requirements over the next decade and we will be promoting the proposal via City of Edinburgh Council's new Local Development Plan in 2019. Further information can be found at www.hattonvillage.com with further public engagement due to take place in late 2018 to inform the development of the masterplan.
Socials and Events
- Scottish Rural Awards
At last year’s Scottish Rural Awards, Clarendon were very proud to sponsor the Business Diversification Award which was won by the very deserving Luss Estates. Their commitment to using local suppliers, professionals, and producers in all their business endeavours helped them take home the award.
- The Royal Highland Show
Clarendon were delighted to be an exhibitor again this year at the Royal Highland Show. The four day event, held in June, is the highlight of the farming calendar and the biggest celebration of farming in the UK with this years’ attendance having a record breaking 190,000 visitors. We were delighted to be able to welcome existing clients as well as to welcome many new faces to join us for a relaxed chat about planning matters over some refreshments and very much enjoyed hearing some of their wonderful rural tales.
- Scone Game Fair
Another week, another Show! The Scottish Game Fair at Scone Palace was our next port of call over the summer show season. This Fair, which is run by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust provided Clarendon with an excellent opportunity to network with many of Scotland’s more northern estate and landowning fraternity. Important issues relating to land ownership and the benefits of rural diversification were the hot topic and we look forward to returning to this vibrant rural show again.
Working in line with Homes for Scotland among other organisations, Clarendon has submitted representations that will seek to improve the planning system.
The Land Registration (Scotland) Act 2012 came into effect on 8 December 2014. This set out a 10 year target for all land in Scotland to be registered in the Land Register of Scotland with all public land to be added by 2019. Clarendon has been working closely with Registers of Scotland to assist land and property owners in having their land registered through the voluntary registration process and this is a key service which Clarendon can now offer.
In the last Quarter Patrica Watson, whom joined Clarendon in September 2015 from the City of Edinburgh Council, was promoted to Senior Associate in recognition of her commitment to business development utilising her planning expertise straddling both urban and rural affairs
