Taylor Wimpey submits plans for new Monifieth homes and welcomes Wallyford approval

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 aims 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.

Pauline Mills, land and planning director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, said: “During our consultation process throughout the summer, we have listened and responded to views from a range of stakeholders and members of the local community.

“This process has contributed to the design of our emerging masterplan for the development, and we have now submitted our planning application for Planning Permission in Principle to Angus Council. We look forward to working with the Local Authority towards a determination of our application in early spring 2022, before making a detailed planning application shortly thereafter.

“As well as an impressive range of new homes, further development at Victoria Street would provide a range of economic benefits for the local Monifieth and wider Angus area. This couldinclude supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses from those who choose to live in one of the new homes this development aims to deliver.”

The housebuilder has also welcomed approval from East Lothian Council for the provision of a further development of new homes on land at Futures Way in Wallyford.

As part of a raft of approvals this week, the local authority’s Planning Committee granted detailed planning permission (an Approval of Matters Specified in
Conditions (AMSC) to Taylor Wimpey for 149 new homes in a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Developer contributions from the overall St Clements Wells masterplan are being made towards a new primary school, secondary school, local centre and community woodland, as well as the provision of new footpaths and cycleways to connect the development to the town of Wallyford as well as the local train station.

Pauline Mills added: “We are delighted to confirm that our application for AMSC for our next development in Wallyford has been approved by East Lothian Council, which will allow us to deliver a further 149 new homes at Ravensheugh.

“Since successfully establishing our first development here in 2020, our next development will enjoy the same range of benefits which includes great transport links, an ideal location with superb views, as well as an impressive range of new homes that have already proved extremely popular and will continue to appeal to a wide range of buyers. The timing of this consent will allow us to provide continuity of build from our existing development of new homes at Ravensheugh.”

Jonathan Brindle from East Lothian Developments said: “Taylor Wimpey is already delivering attractive new homes on their initial site at St Clements Wells. This is an exciting time at the development with work well under way on the new secondary school, so we are very pleased to see these further new houses coming forward from Taylor Wimpey to give more people the chance to enjoy everything St Clements Wells has to offer over the coming years.”
