Hyslop Welcomes Billion Pound Development for Winchburgh
Local MSP Fiona Hyslop is delighted to welcome the launch of the £1 billion pound investment into a new development in Winchburgh. Work on the project, which commenced this week (July 16th) will see 3000 new homes, a quarter of which will be affordable housing.
“New schools, business opportunities, retail and leisure establishments are just some of the new facilities to be built as part of this £1 Billion development. Thousands of new residents could arrive in the area in an expansion that will cover 900 acres over the next 15 years.
“The first phase of this huge investment is expected to bring 300 jobs annually, stimulating growth and prosperity to the local economy and will also benefit the wider West Lothian region.
“I am delighted that project managers, Sigma Capital, including their first phase contractors, Realm Construction, have pledged to employ as many local people as possible as the development proceeds.”
