Located east of the A801 and west of Whitecross village, Whitecross is centred on the site of the former Manuel Brick and Fireclay Works.


Whitecross offers a 130 ha brownfield site, with a 12 ha minimum of industrial or business land required as part of the new settlement.


The site is owned by Morston Assets, Callendar Estates, MWL Ltd and Falkirk Council.

Development/Planning Status

Whitecross is zoned as a Strategic Initiative for Residential Regeneration within the Falkirk Local Development Plan, which promotes a strategic housing allocation and regeneration initiative.

Available Financial Assistance

The site is located in an area in which eligible projects may attract 15%-35% Regional Selective Assistance funding. Further information on eligibility of RSA funding support can be provided.

TIF Supported Enabling Works

A new site access to the A803 has recently been formed, and the developer has agreed a Section 75 cost for signalisation-related works to Junction 4.

Local Network Infrastructure

Given its location, access to Whitecross is challenging, however, the masterplan promotes a new access from the west connected to the A801. The developer has been asked to make Section 75 contributions to Junction 4 upgrading. Agreement on access rights are also required for connections to the A801.


Internal access is via an extended connector street from the A801 through to the existing Whitecross Village and connecting to the A803 via the Haining Road and B825.
