Chapelton visualisation highlights full scope of planned New Town
January 30 2014
Infrastructure work for the £2bn Chapelton scheme began in October with the first homes expected to move on site this spring for completion by the end of the year
Commenting on the scheme EDC director Lord Southesk said: “This animation shows that Chapelton is fundamentally different to other developments. The complete town is planned from the outset.
“There will be places to work, places to eat and socialise, shops and schools. Every day needs will be within a five minute walk and because there is 40 per cent green space the entire built area will feel open.
“The architecture blends the old with the new. It draws influence from older styles built with the latest mod cons and the latest design features to accommodate modern living.”
Town architect Gavin Murray from Brooks Murray Architects added: “It is important Chapelton sits comfortably in the Aberdeenshire landscape, so we have drawn heavily from the best precedents set by a number of neighbouring historic towns and villages, including Stonehaven and Banchory.”
Housebuilders ZeroC Holdings, AJC Homes and A & J Stephenwill deliver the first phase of housing, delivered in accordance with a master plan prepared by Duany Plater-Zyberk.
