Taylor Wimpey builds on success in West London with approval for high-quality homes in Kew

Taylor Wimpey West London is celebrating yet another land and planning success, with the granting of permission for a brand new residential development in Kew, London.

The team is making good progress securing new sites for development within the West London market and its latest planning approval is for 170 high-quality apartments at Bessant Drive.

The Taylor Wimpey scheme, granted planning permission by the London Borough of Richmond following a S106 agreement, will regenerate a vacant brownfield site not in use for 10 years, close to the River Thames and within half a mile of Kew Gardens.

The development will comprise a combination of one, two and three-bedroom apartments to suit a range of purchasers, from first-time buyers and downsizers through to growing families.

Taylor Wimpey aims to begin work on the development in August and the first new apartments are expected to be released for sale in the autumn.

Jonathan Miller, Technical Director for Taylor Wimpey West London, said:

“We are delighted to have received planning approval for this exceptional development, which will provide a superb selection of new apartments, as well as investment for the local community.”

“This is an exciting time for our business and this scheme represents yet another success in securing planning permission for new homes within the West London area.”

The Bessant Drive development will be set within an extensive green landscape, with a landscaped courtyard at the centre.

The development will include space for a new doctors’ surgery, in direct response to requests from many local people for additional healthcare facilities in Kew at two pre-application public exhibitions held by Taylor Wimpey.

The nearby North Road surgery has already said this is their preferred site for relocation, providing an opportunity to double the size of their current surgery.

The wonderful Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, a world heritage site, is within walking distance, as is The National Archives, where historic documents including the Domesday Book are stored.
