Townend (Main Street), Symington
Our project in Symington is located off Main Street in Symington, Ayrshire.
The site is allocated for housing in the South Ayrshire Local Development Plan, adopted in September 2014, and our development proposals comply fully with its requirements. We have considered matters relating to design, site layout, internal roads and impact of development on the surrounding network of roads, sensitivity to the conservation area of the village, provision of safe crossing points on Main Street and protecting the amenity of neighbouring properties.
The development proposals include 140 homes, two large parks, two play areas, extensive green amenity space, new access roads from Townend Road and Main Street, pedestrian courtesy crossings on Main Street, informal path networks and a new ‘street’ frontage onto Main Street and Townend Road, extending the village outwards and slowing traffic on the approach to the centre of the village. The development incorporates 25% affordable housing.
We submitted a planning application to South Ayrshire Council in November 2014 and we currently expect an outcome in April 2015.
