Work begins on Scotland’s largest new town
Work to build Scotland’s largest new town in a generation has commenced at Chapelton, Aberdeenshire, including £8m of infrastructure work to ready the site for the first phase of some 8,000 new homes.

To mark the occasion a cairn seat was unveiled     in the gardens of Elsick House, which will become a key civic space at the heart of the new town.

Lord Southesk, director of Elsick Development Company, said: “This momentous day is the culmination of many years of planning. It will be really exciting to see the diggers start on site creating what will become a thriving new sustainable community with a busy high street, schools, healthcare facilities and lots of green space on 2,000 acres of farmland.

“We have now completed a range of house designs to suit a variety of needs and with a focus on modern living. House builders Zero C Holdings, AJC Homes and A&J Stephen will start to deliver the first homes from Spring 2014.”

Designs are currently being developed for the first school in the town ahead of its likely opening in 2018.
