Taylor Wimpey plans new homes for Robroyston
Plans have been unveiled for a development of around 350 new homes in Robroyston, Glasgow.
Along with its development partner Caledonian Properties Ltd, Taylor Wimpey West Scotland has submitted an application for Planning Permission in Principal to Glasgow City Council for the development at Cortmalaw Road.
The application follows two public consultation events that were held last year.
The proposal includes a mix of house styles and tenures set within a landscape setting, with generous public open space, potential community space and footpath links together with the associated infrastructure required for a development of this scale.
Part of the site outlined for the proposed development is identified in the adopted Local Development Plan for residential development.
Lesley McVeigh, strategic land and planning manager for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said: “Along with our development partners Caledonian Properties Ltd, we are delighted to confirm that we have made our application for Planning Permission in Principal for the development of land off Cortmalaw Road in Robroyston.
“We feel that our proposal reflects a strong community focus for Robroyston and it will integrate with the established local community.
“As well as an impressive range of new homes, our development would provide a range of economic benefits for the local Robroyston area which includes the equivalent of 120 direct and indirect jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses spending around £5.2 million annually and around £2m on making their new home feel like a home.
“We believe this development would be a great addition to the local area. It also complements our other developments across the region.”
