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.
