Land acquisition set to deliver 227 new homes in Jacktonhall

TAYLOR Wimpey West Scotland is to deliver a new 227-home development after acquiring land off Jackton Road on the western edge of East Kilbride.

This project forms part of the East Kilbride Community Growth Area (EKCGA), and planning consent was secured in June 2021 from South Lanarkshire Council, following Planning Permission in Principle being granted in October 2019.

Amble Court, Jacktonhall will deliver a mix of two and three-bedroom terrace and semi- detached homes, as well as three and four-bedroom detached properties.

Taylor Wimpey said the project will benefit from the delivery of ‘key’ infrastructure as part of the masterplan vision for the EKCGA such as new roads, which are already under construction, a new primary school, and retail provision.

New footpaths will also be provided to connect with the proposed new infrastructure and the existing local footpath network.

Amble Court will complement Taylor Wimpey’s other developments in South Lanarkshire, including Benthall Farm where construction work on phase 3 is underway in East Kilbride.

Caroline Proctor, land and planning director at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said, “We are very pleased to have acquired land off Jackton Road, which forms an important part of the EKCGA. This latest milestone for our Amble Court development cements our commitment to bringing new homes to this thriving new community that is emerging on the western edge of East Kilbride.

“And while playing our part in the delivery of new homes within the EKCGA and its masterplan, our development will also 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. We expect our pre-construction works to get underway in early 2022.”
