UK-based Springfield Properties has received planning approval from Perth and Kinross Council for a 3,000-home community .

The £1bn project, named Bertha Park and located in Perth, covers an area of 333ha.

Bertha’s first phase, likely to commence in 2017, will be assessed by a committee next month and will include 1,100 new private, affordable and retirement homes.

Springfield managing director Innes Smith said: “We are delighted with today’s decision. This is a big step forward in a 30-year project and the result of five years of planning and design in partnerships with Perth and Kinross Council.

“We have set our sights on delivering an exceptional place for people to love and work and we are excited to be bringing Springfield’s award winning homes to Perth. We are on track to start building in 2017, initially creating around 450 new jobs and supporting many more.”
