Taylor Wimpey buys in to Lomondgate

07 Dec 2011

The £100m Lomondgate development in Dumbarton has received another major boost with the news that Taylor Wimpey has completed the purchase of a 12 acre site.

Taylor Wimpey is expected to start construction on the site early in the New Year and will build a range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes.

The deal was dependent on planning permission from West Dunbartonshire Council, which has now given the green light to the housebuilder's plans to build 110 family homes at the mixed-use development near Loch Lomond.

The builder joins Persimmon Homes and Walker Group on the site, which will eventually feature more than 300 homes.

Residents have already moved into the first homes on the Walker Group phase of the development, which will comprise of 109 properties.  Persimmon is proposing to construct a total of 119 units on their phase.

Audrey Ross, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland said:  "Taylor Wimpey is delighted to have secured planning permission to begin work on its part in the delivery of the Lomondgate masterplan that will create a new way of living in West Dunbartonshire.  The scope of our proposed plans will ensure there's a wide choice of homes to suit a wide range of buyers, and we're confident they'll share our vision for their new community.  We expect to start works on-site in early 2012, and plan to have our homes on sale by Spring 2012."
