Good News for the Trades as Three Firms Announce to Build New Homes in Scotland
Three of the leading UK housebuilders are set to build thousands of new homes as part of a major transformational project in Bishopton, South West Scotland, creating new jobs in the building construction sector.
More than 2,500 new homes will be built over the 15-year development programme, making this one of the most exciting property developments taking place in the UK at the moment.
Construction work on the first phase of the £32 million residential development is scheduled to start in September 2012. During its construction phase, the project is expected to create around 4,000 full and part-time employment opportunities for local residents and people in the trades.
Project Director for BAE Systems, Lynda Johnstone, said: “It is testament to the scale and quality of the transformation project that it has sparked the high level of interest from property developers of the calibre of Taylor Wimpey, CALA and Persimmon.
“The multi-million pound regeneration programme will see high quality homes in the area and deliver a new community, which alongside the housing development will include a new primary school, library, community centre, leisure facilities and woodland park to complement the existing friendly, close-knit village feel of Bishopton.”
The regeneration is expected to deliver significant employment and business opportunities with the first homes going on sale in early 2013.
