East Kilbride development to welcome 67 new affordable homes

TAYLOR Wimpey West Scotland has confirmed that it has reached agreement with South Lanarkshire Council to build 67 affordable homes for social rent at Benthall Farm in East Kilbride.

The housebuilder said it has designed a range of homes which will allow its team to deliver ‘accurate, appropriate, and responsive’ proposals to meet the design brief for affordable homes at the development.

Alison Henderson, special projects manager for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said, “Reaching the conclusion of this agreement for Benthall Farm marks another milestone on the journey towards creating a diverse community that complements the existing neighbourhoods of East Kilbride. As part of our Section 75 agreement, we have already made contributions of over £2 million towards education, roads and the community and we remain committed to working closely with South Lanarkshire Council to ensure the local community of East Kilbride continues to reap the benefits of our long-term investment in the area.”
