Greenspace championed at Kilmacolm housing development

Taylor Wimpey with Optimised Environments have filed plans with Inverclyde Council for a mix of 100 private and affordable homes at Planetreetetts, Kilmacolm.

Situated in an existing residential area close to the village centre the development will include a new area of open space at the corner of Finlaystone Road and Quarry Road.

Lesley McVeigh, strategic land and planning manager for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, commented: “We are delighted to be submitting this planning application, which followed extensive community engagement, and aims to deliver a vibrant and sustainable residential development.

“There are many from Kilmacolm who want to stay in the village but are not currently able to do so due to a shortage of appropriate housing.”

The site will also connect to the National Cycle Network.

25 of 100 properties will be classed as affordable

look at that proposed house type... absolute mince!
I guess the money they have saved on design fees has gone on the golden road junction?

I remember my Grandpa telling me it was a toss up between Balmoral and Kilmacolm for Victoria’s Scottish Home. With that design illustration she made have made the right choice.

I assume this is for Quarry Drive and not Quarry Road?

The house builders are circulating Kilmacolm like a cash cow to foist their usual blend of faceless house types and 'designing for streets' cliches
