We build new community in Barrhead

Our West Scotland team welcomed local MSP Tom Arthur (Minister for Public Finance, Planning & Community Welfare) to our Duncarnock development in Barrhead to see for himself the major improvements that have been made along with the progress on the delivery of new homes.  

This development forms a key part of the Barrhead South Masterplan which will also provide a range of benefits to the wider local community and includes a new railway station, transport upgrades and  improvements to the Dams to Darnley Country Park.

Duncarnock will also boast a design that aims to create a sense of place and maximises the latest Scottish Government Planning Policy for ‘Designing Streets’ where new homes will be carefully positioned to create interest and character. This includes homes that have a dual aspect in order to maximise views over the surrounding countryside, the existing burn corridor, the public open space, as well as overlooking the public streets.

David Blair, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said: “The timing of Mr Arthur’s visit has allowed him to see the investment and commitment that we have made to the early delivery of key infrastructure at Duncarnock. Our programme of local road infrastructure improvements, delivered ahead of first customers moving in, helps to make this a great place to live, as well as delivering improvements for the existing community and playing our part in the wider Barrhead South Masterplan vision.  

“It’s also really important to us that we create new communities that can be enjoyed by future generations. We’re working hard to help our customers to live more sustainably and the homes at Duncarnock have many features which make it easier for them to save energy and water and work from home."

Tom Arthur MSP said: “It was great to have the opportunity to meet the senior team at Taylor Wimpey and see how work at Duncarnock is progressing, and also gain a greater understanding of the contribution it is making to the local community, in terms of both employment and  infrastructure improvements. The chance to meet the apprentices and graduate trainees working on this development was also welcomed, and it was great to witness their obvious enthusiasm for the  project. I look forward to being updated about the Duncarnock development as it progresses.”
