Taylor Wimpey secures detailed consent for East Kilbride development
Taylor Wimpey West Scotland has secured detailed planning permission (an Approval of Matters Specified in Conditions) from South Lanarkshire Council for the provision of 227 private new homes through the development of land off Jackton Road, on the western edge of East Kilbride, which forms part of the East Kilbride Community Growth Area (EKCGA).
Planning Permission in Principle (PPP) has already been secured for this development, and Taylor Wimpey’s AMSC planning consent sets out its detailed plans for housing mix, landscaping and building materials.
Amble Court, Jacktonhall will include a mix of two and three-bedroom terraced and semi-detached, as well as three and four-bedroom detached homes. The development has also been designed to create a sense of place and maximises the latest Scottish Government Planning Policy for Designing Streets and will benefit from the delivery of key infrastructure as part of the masterplan vision for the area such as new roads, which are already under construction, as well as a new primary school and retail.
New footpaths will be provided to connect with the proposed infrastructrure and existing local footpath network allowing residents to enjoy the development’s tranquil setting. New landscaping to the north and south of the development aims to maximise and retain views to and from the existing countryside.
Colin Blair, technical director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said: “We are delighted to confirm that we have secured detailed planning permission for the development of land off Jackton Road in East Kilbride. This further development in East Kilbride represents a significant and continued investment in the local area by Taylor Wimpey West Scotland.
“Our plan to deliver 227 new homes at Jackton forms a key part of the East Kilbride Community Growth Area, which was granted Planning Permission in Principle in October 2019, and we look forward to progressing this development towards construction start later this year.
“As well playing our part in the delivery of new homes within the EKCGA and its masterplan, our development will provide a range of economic benefits for the local area which includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses.”
