Bertha Park funding milestone as developer commits to roads and schools
Springfield Properties has committed to paying £28m in developer contributions after its plans for a giant £1bn development were approved by Perth and Kinross Council.

The Bertha Park masterplan calls for construction of 3,000 homes, commercial premises and schools on the outskirts of the city, accessible via the proposed Cross Tay Link Road.

Under the deal Springfield has committed £14m toward a new primary school, £12.5m for the proposed link road and a parcel of land to host a brand new secondary school.

Perth & Kinross councillor John Kellas, said: “The city is one of the fastest growing places in Scotland. The Bertha Park development will ensure this expansion continues by not only providing everything a growing community needs including good quality housing and schools, but, also by creating business and leisure opportunities.

“The development will also improve the area’s infrastructure by providing new cycle paths and walking routes into the city of Perth as well as a new network of roads.”

Work on the 30-year masterplan isn’t expected to begin for another year.
