TWWS Scotland Range 2011 The Geddes 2 CGI

TAYLOR Wimpey West Scotland has confirmed detailed planning consent has been secured 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.

Newton Farm is a multi-million pound master plan development that is situated within a South Lanarkshire Council ‘Community Growth Area’ which is an area that has been designated for housing and associated infrastructure. As part of the wider 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 cycle- ways 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, “Taylor Wimpey is delighted to confirm that detailed planning consent has been granted for part of our land at Newton Farm. This marks our ongoing commitment, investment and strong track record of delivering excellent quality developments in South Lanarkshire.

“Our role in the creation of Newton Farm, and our plan to embrace the ‘Designing Streets’ planning guidance will continue our aim to deliver an attractive and desirable place to live within the Newton Farm area of South Lanarkshire. And our latest planning consent marks significant progress for the overall Newton Farm master plan, as well as our commitment to build new homes there.”
