Chapelton of Elsick application for 9,000 home new town

Chapelton of Elsick application for 9,000 home new town

An application has been submitted for a massive new town development in Aberdeenshire. Developers want to build 9,000 homes at Chapelton of Elsick, about 10 miles south of Aberdeen, as well as school provision and retail space. It would be situated at a 2,000-acre area of farmland near Newtonhill. The application, by the Elsick Development Company (EDC), has gone to Aberdeenshire Council for consideration. The land is owned by the Duke of Fife and the project is being managed by his son David Southesk.

  • Why is it that developers have to ‘big it up’ so much? On the website it is called a ‘vision’. It is just a bunch of houses with a few trees here and there, and I suspect the aim of this ‘vision’ is to make a packet for the landowners. Anyone would think we were colonising planet Mars. Just get on and build the houses we need in this country and stop messing around.

  • Owned by the Duke of Fife, managed by his son. No doubt the land was first won by his great-great-great-great-great grandfather because he managed to persuade the peasants on his land to kill the peasants on another Duke’s land. Somebody please explain why this one family should continue to own so much of our land?
