Caerlee Mill housing - planning submission / by Nikki Barton

Our latest residential project with the award winning Whiteburn projects is the redevelopment of the former Caerlee Mill in Innerleithen.

A planning application for 44 new build houses and flats was submitted in Autumn. The vision for the site, in the heart of this thriving Borders village, is to build a range of two, three and four bedroom houses and cottage flats which have been designed to reflect the spirit of the former mill site as well as the heritage of the village structure.

The new-build housing will be released for sale on the open market and Whiteburn hopes this will add to the vibrancy of the established Innerleithen community. This approach also aims to tap into the demand for Borders living as property owners aspire to a better life/work balance, and escape busy city life to be able to enjoy the benefits of the beautiful countryside and outdoor pursuits on offer.

The application has been well received by Scottish Borders Council and is expected to be determined by the end of the year.
