Welcome to the Dukes Field Pre-Application Consultation Web Page

Wellington Farms Ltd are delighted to share their draft proposals for the development of new homes at the site know as Dukes Field in Midlothian, to the north of the City Bypass and south east of Millerhill.

Dukes Field is outlined in red on the aerial photograph below. Also depicted are the 'Phase 1' proposals by CALA Homes, which Midlothian Council has decided to grant planning permission for in 2019, but building work is still to begin.

We want ensure that you are informed of the plans and welcome the opportunity to hear your views as we continue to develop our thoughts before submitting an application for Planning Permission in Principle. There is a link to the Exhibition Boards further down this page.

This public engagement arises from the 'Proposal of Application Notice’ for Residential Development and Associated Infrastructure submitted on 20 March 2020.

In normal circumstances we would have hosted a public exhibition in a local venue but the ban on public gatherings due to the Covid-19 pandemic means that this is not possible. Therefore, in accordance with the latest Scottish Government guidance, we are undertaking public engagement via this web page.
