Taylor Wimpey comes to Lomondgate

22 Aug 2011

Walker Group has announced the conditional sale of a further 11 acres of land at the £100m Lomondgate mixed-use development near Loch Lomond in West Dunbartonshire.

Taylor Wimpey has formally agreed to acquire the parcel of land and has lodged a planning application with West Dunbartonshire Council to build 110 family homes at the development which is one of Scotland's most ambitious regeneration projects.

The national housebuilder plans to build a range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes at Lomondgate. If planning is successful Taylor Wimpey will join Walker Residential and Persimmon Homes on the site late this year.

Construction and housebuilding work by Walker and Persimmon is already well underway at Lomondgate with their first properties due for completion this month and the first reservations now being taken. Walker Group are constructing 109 homes with Persimmon building a further 119 homes, creating a vibrant new community on the edge of Dumbarton.

Audrey Ross, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland said:  "Being part of the Lomondgate development gives Taylor Wimpey an exciting opportunity to play a key role in the delivery of a new vision and way of living for the West Dunbartonshire area.  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're looking forward to working with each of the project partners to progress our proposals through the planning process."

So far more than £14m has been invested by Walker Group into the development, which includes significant local road and infrastructure improvements, including the construction of the new Lomondgate roundabout leading into the business park and the other main elements of the project.
