Taylor Wimpey secures land for new Hamilton development
Following an Approval of Matters specified in Conditions (AMSC) planning consent in February of this year from South Lanarkshire Council for the provision of 203 private new homes, Taylor Wimpey West Scotland has confirmed that it has acquired the land required for this development off Meikle Earnock Road, in Hamilton.
This development forms part of the wider masterplan for the Brackenhill Farm area and is recognised as part of the Hamilton Community Growth area. Planning Permission in Principle (PPP) has already been secured for this development, and Taylor Wimpey’s AMSC planning consent sets out its detailed proposals for housing mix, landscaping and building materials.
Offering a mix of two and three-bedroom terrace and semi-detached, as well as four and five-bedroom detached homes, this development will ultimately appeal to a wide range of potential buyers.
The design of the development also follows the agreed design principles already set out in the masterplan which will see upgrades to Meikle Earnock Road, including continuation of the bus route and a new footpath network allowing access to the adjacent woodland and open space.
This development will also benefit from the delivery of key infrastructure as part of the masterplan vision for the area such as further upgrades to Meikle Earnock Road, and there are play areas provided within other parcels of the masterplan development.
New footpaths will connect to the existing local footpath network and they will also provide access to the wider open space of the overall development.
Caroline Proctor, land and planning director at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said: “We are pleased to have acquired this land for our development of new homes off Meikle Earnock Road in Hamilton. It represents a significant and continued investment in the local area by Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, and a return to Hamilton for our business.
”Our development will deliver 203 new homes, which form a key part of the Brackenhill Farm area masterplan that was granted Planning Permission in Principle in May 2017.
“As well playing our part in the delivery of new homes within the Brackenhill Farm 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.”
