Taylor Wimpey appeals refusal of Monifieth development
Taylor Wimpey has lodged an appeal with the Scottish Government after its plans to build 50 homes in Monifieth was rejected by Angus Council.
The housebuilder submitted a planning application for the Victoria Street development last October.
The proposed development is bound by the A92 to the north and Victoria Street to the south, with Taylor Wimpey’s almost completed Victoria Grange development nearby. It aimed to provide a mix of two, three, and four-bedroom homes, of which 25% will be affordable and will create a modest extension to its neighbouring development.
The company has now put through an appeal, claiming there is not enough land in the town to build more houses.
A spokesperson for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said: “We have submitted an appeal with the Scottish Government in respect of Angus Council planning committee’s refusal of our planning application in principle.
“We lodged this appeal on the basis that, in our opinion, there is an insufficient supply of housing land to provide new homes in Monifieth over the next five-year period.
“The council in considering our planning application should have recognised this lack of available housing land and granted consent for our proposed development.”
