Taylor Wimpey to build over 600 new homes in Cambuslang
Taylor Wimpey West Scotland has secured detailed planning consent from South Lanarkshire Council to deliver 612 homes as part of the master plan vision for Newton Farm in Cambuslang.
The development will consist of five individual phases of new homes and each one will offer a range of two, three, and four bedroom homes in a variety of styles and sizes.
The development will embrace the Scottish planning guidance principles of ‘Designing Streets’ which aims to create varied streetscapes and spaces, and will include features such as focal points within many of the street-scenes, as well as character areas which are essentially shared spaces in a residential zone to provide a focus for social interaction, as well as an equipped play area.
As part of the wider Newton Farm master plan, Taylor Wimpey will provide a new primary school complete with 3G sports pitch, retail space, plus wider infrastructure improvements which will include new cycleways and off-site roadworks, as well as further play areas which will be delivered at varying stages as the wider development is constructed.
Stephen Andrew, associate technical director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland said he anticipates that the first families will move into the first phase of the development towards the end of 2015.
