Elstow garden village is planned for a 281 ha site that formerly housed a Second World War munitions factory. It will include shops, schools and leisure facilities. The project team includes masterplanner Tibbalds TM2, consulting engineer WSP and consultant Arup. The developer said it expected construction work to start next year.
Gallagher said it had worked with the Cranfield University to create a sustainability guide for the scheme. Gallagher chairman Tony Gallagher said: "Elstow accords to the government's agenda on every count. It's a brownfield site ideal for development."
The Scottish scheme in Wester Inch, near Bathgate, will be on a former British Leyland assembly plant and include a school and shops.
It has been masterplanned by town planner David Lock Associates. Gallagher said it planned a circular bus route to link Wester Inch to the centre of Bathgate.
