A national house builder has secured planning consent from East Renfrewshire Council for 137 new homes off Neilston Road in Neilston.
Taylor Wimpey West Scotland identified a 15 acre site for housing in the Local Development Plan and Planning Permission in Principle was granted in March 2016.
As part of the Planning Permission in Principle, a Section 75 Planning Agreement was entered into with East Renfrewshire Council, and the development of this site will deliver new affordable housing as well as further investment in local education and community facilities.
The company said that Kirkton View in Neilston represents a significant investment in the local area and will deliver a range of two, three and four bedroom homes in a variety of styles and sizes to appeal to a wide range of customers.
The development is set in rural and mature countryside on the outskirts of Neilston off the A736 Neilston Road and is within easy walking distance of the local amenities on Main Street in Neilston. Kirkton View will also aim to maximise its setting with the provision of tree-lined streets and pedestrian routes to the protected urban greenspace to the west of the site.
New trees will also be planted in order to create an area of woodland to the east of the development that will maximise the tranquil setting this development will offer buyers choosing this location to call home. A central green area will provide a substantial play area.
Stephen Andrew, Technical Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland adds: “Taylor Wimpey is delighted to confirm that we have secured planning consent for 137 new homes off Neilston Road in Neilston.
“As well as an impressive range of new homes, our development will provide a range of economic benefits for the local Neilston area which includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses.
“We believe this development will be a great addition to the local area, and it also complements our other developments across the region. We anticipate that construction work at the development will start later this month.
“Our development of new homes at Neilston offers potential buyers access to a great place to call home that benefits from an exceptional range of local amenities which includes an impressive choice of schools including an ideal location that benefits from the catchment of Eastwood High School.”
