St Andrews West
Proposals have been submitted by ‘Headon S1 St Andrews West’ (a joint venture between Headon Developments and S1 Developments) for the first phase of St Andrews West (STAW). The proposals form part of the wider St Andrews West masterplan, approved by Fife Council in June 2019. The vision for St Andrews West has evolved over many years and the design aims to provide an exemplar for new urban development with a long-term commitment to the town and community.
The detailed proposals include a mix of terraced and semi-detached housing, flats and maisonettes placed carefully within an extensively landscaped setting. Low and zero carbon technology, biodiverse landscaping and a fabric-first approach to construction ensure that sustainability is at the heart of the design. Shared streets, dedicated cycle lanes and connections to wider public transport networks encourage sustainable travel. A central green corridor runs through the site connecting neighbourhoods and providing a safe social amenity space for residents.
Key to the design is an understanding of the sensitivities of placing a new contemporary development on the outskirts of such a historic town. The design has been developed through careful studies, analysis and gaining an understanding of the wider context of St Andrews.
Subject to planning approval, HS1 hopes to break ground on the first phase in summer 2022.
