A rural home in Midlothian

We were delighted to obtain Planning Permission in Principle at Midlothian Local Review Body last week for a new house in Nine Mile Burn. The site sits in a row of existing dwellings and represents completion of the local developed frontage.


The Local Review Body agreed that the new dwelling expanded an existing village and was acceptable in principle. Further, they agreed that the house was consistent with NPF4 strategic objective to reach net zero by 2045 and could be accessed sustainably. In reaching this conclusion, it was agreed that the new dwelling accorded with Policy RD1 and NPF4 Policies 1 & 17 despite the Report of Handling assertion that contradiction was raised with all three.


All the team are delighted that we were able to secure a positive result for the client and enable a high quality new home to come forward in a sustainable countryside location.
