Macmerry is a relatively small village located on the A199, formerly part of the A1, a short distance to the east of Tranent, approximately 16 miles east of Edinburgh city centre. The village itself has good bus links to Edinburgh with a journey time of approximately 45 minutes, with rail-line links found close-by within the nearby town of Wallyford.

The subjects lie in a rural area approximately 0.6 miles to the south of Macmerry and approximately 1.7 miles to the east of the larger East Lothian town of Tranent. Tranent itself benefits from good levels of housing construction, to include a large scheme by the Scottishhousing developer Walker Homes. Edinburgh itself lies approximately 16 miles to the west of the site and can be reached in circa 30 minutes by vehicle out-with peak travel hours


The subjects comprise a disused and overgrown former steading building, situated on an irregularly shaped site, with the steadings themselves lying towards the northern end of the site itself. The proposed development site itself is surrounded by agricultural land.

The subjects benefit from planning consent, reference: 16/00531/P, for 6 housing units providing circa 1,412.sqm of development space. The development itself is proposed to sit within a traditionally styled courtyard setting with 5 linked properties, with a further detached unit to be constructed towards the south-east corner of the site. We are advised that the proposed development currently has 14 unallocated parking spaces.

Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with regards to planning to East Lothian Council Planning department, quoting the reference number mentioned above
