First phase of £800m Aberdeen New Town opens its doors
April 25 2017
Developed by Stewart Milne Group Countesswells will include the full panoply of associated infrastructure including schools, parkland, leisure and healthcare facilities in addition to shops and business premises.
Project director Allan McGregor said: “Working closely with the UK Government, we have created a model which could be used for other settlements, similar to the recently-announced Garden Villages in England, where quality, design, cutting-edge technology, local employment and accessible green spaces are the heart of delivering high quality urban realm. Our ambition reflects the vision for these developments which are about well thought-through communities and not simply dormitory suburbs.”
Phased delivery of the town will be undertaken over the next 15 years in accordance with a masterplan devised by Optimised Environments.
