The house builder has secured full consent from Renfrewshire Council for the provision of 147 new homes.
The 16.5 acre site in Dargavel Village, Bishopton, provides Taylor Wimpey with the opportunity to deliver three, four and five bedroom new homes in a variety of styles and sizes to appeal to a wide range of buyers.
The design brief offers interesting street scenes, detailed landscaping along with specific tree-planting around key character areas that will be reflected both within the development, and at key points across the wider development as the vision for the masterplan unfolds.
Dargavel Village is a flagship development that forms part of a multi-million pound regeneration programme. It will see facilities for a new commmunity delivered alongside the range of new homes by a variety of developers.
Willie Burns, managing director for Taylor Wimpey in west Scotland said: "Taylor Wimpey is delighted to be included within the first house builders' consortium to deliver its part of the masterplan that will create a new way of living in Bishopton.
"Our planning permission is the result of a key working partnership with both Renfrewshire Council and BAE Systems to bring to life and deliver their vision for Dargavel Village in Bishopton. And this is a very exciting time for the project as the implementation of many years of work begins.
"The scope of Taylor Wimpey's development will ensure there's a wide choice of homes to suit a broad range of buyers and we're keen to make a positive contribution to the community as our development progresses.
"We expect to start works within the next few weeks, and plan to have our homes on sale by early 2013."
Lynda Johnstone, Bishopton project director for BAE Systems said: "It is testament to the scale and quality of the transformational project we have in Bishopton, that it has sparked the high level of interest from property developers of the calibre of Taylor Wimpey.
"With the company now another step closer to delivering their mix of high quality family homes at Dargavel Village, we will soon see our vision for the area coming to life.
"The multi-million pound regeneration programme will result in 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."
