WLHP development in Whitburn shortlisted for prestigious award
A NEW development by West Lothian Housing Partnership (WLHP) has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.
WLHP’s 85 new homes in Dixon Terrace, Whitburn, have been nominated in the Affordable Housing Development of the Year (Social Rent) category at the Scottish Home Awards.
WLHP, part of Wheatley, Scotland’s leading housing, care and property-management group, completed the new homes in July 2020. The developer was Springfield Partnerships Ltd.
The Scottish Home Awards celebrate the best in Scottish housebuilding every year, and have been running since 2007.
Elspeth Lang, Wheatley Development Manager, said: “Our new homes can help transform lives and communities and we’re delighted to be recognised in these prestigious awards.”
The winners will be revealed at an awards dinner in Glasgow in September.
Last year, Wheatley scooped two prizes at the Scottish Home Awards.
GHA’s conversion of Bell Street Stables in Glasgow’s Merchant City won Renovation of the Year, and Loretto Housing picked up Housing Regeneration Project of the Year for the conversion of the former Greenview School in Buckley Street, in Glasgow.
WLHP is currently building 146 new homes at Almondvale in Livingston and another 42 homes at Jarvey Street, Bathgate.
Work is also underway on another 20 new WLHP homes in Winchburgh on the outskirts of Edinburgh, and on 14 homes in in Blackness Road, Linlithgow.
