Taylor Wimpey gets green light to deliver 341 new homes in South Queensferry

Taylor Wimpey East Scotland has secured a Resolution to Grant detailed planning permission from the City of Edinburgh Council for 341 new homes at South Scotstoun, South Queensferry.

Situated on land off Kirkliston Road to the south of South Queensferry, the 35.35 acre site is identified for housing in the adopted Edinburgh Local Development Plan.

The development will deliver a range of two bedroom apartments, as well as a choice of two, three, four and five bedroom homes to ensure that it will appeal to a wide range of buyers.

As part of the latest 2016 Scottish Building Regulations and to contribute to Scotland’s carbon reduction plan, the roofs of all homes at the development will be fitted with Photovoltaic panels. This will allow homeowners to generate some of their own electricity from the sun’s energy for use in their home.

The development will include footpaths and cycle routes that connect to South Queensferry itself, and there will be a provision of 25% affordable homes. Section 75 discussions are ongoing with the local authority, which will see Taylor Wimpey East Scotland make community contributions of around £7 million towards education, health and local transport infrastructure.

As well as a choice of stylish and high-quality family homes, this decision will help the development at Scotstoun to provide a range of economic benefits for the local area that includes supporting around 40 jobs per year of construction and the attraction of new customers to local businesses.

Pauline Mills, land & planning director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, added: “We are delighted to confirm that a Resolution to Grant detailed planning permission has been secured for our development of new homes at Scotstoun in South Queensferry.

“Ultimately this will allow us to bring forward a development that offers buyers a great choice of new homes, and it also marks our commitment, investment and strong track record of delivering excellent quality developments of family homes across the local area.”
