East Renfrewshire Council has granted detailed planning consent to Taylor Wimpey West Scotland for 137 new homes in Neilston.

The 15 acre site off Neilston Road is identified for housing in the Local Development Plan and Planning Permission in Principle was granted in March 2016.

Taylor Wimpey said Kirkton View in Neilston represents a significant investment in the local area by the housebuilder, and it will deliver a range of two, three and four bedroom homes in a variety of styles and sizes to appeal to a wide range of customers.

New trees will be planted in order to create an area of woodland to the east of the development. A central green area will also provide a substantial play area.

As part of the Planning Permission in Principle, a Section 75 Planning Agreement was entered into with East Renfrewshire Council, and the development of this site will deliver new affordable housing as well as further investment in local education and community facilities.

Stephen Andrew, technical director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, added: “Taylor Wimpey is delighted to confirm that we have secured planning consent for 137 new homes off Neilston Road in Neilston.

“As well as an impressive range of new homes, our development will provide a range of economic benefits for the local Neilston area which includes supporting over 160 jobs per year of construction, as well as the attraction of new customers to local businesses.

“We believe this development will be a great addition to the local area, and it also complements our other developments across the region.

We anticipate that construction work at the development will start later this month.”
