WCN Editorial Team 14 Jun 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Springfield Properties’ plans for phase one of the £1bn Bertha Park mixed-use development in Scotland, UK have received the go-ahead from Perth and Kinross Council.

The first phase will include construction of 1,061 new homes, commercial buildings, as well as leisure and recreation areas. Plans also include a new network of roads, and a new secondary school.

Springfield Properties managing director Innes Smith said: “Perth is a very attractive place to live and work. Not surprisingly the city is one of the fastest growing places in Scotland. We are committed to enabling that expansion with homes, business and leisure opportunities over the next thirty years. Already we have spent five years developing this plan.”

“The plan provides everything a growing community needs. It is important that there are homes for every age and stage.

“There will be lots of options to suit all budgets. Homes for sale, homes for private and mid-market rental and homes for rent through housing associations; all are proposed. Many of the homes have been designed especially to suit the site. And all homes are designed to be very energy efficient, keeping bills low for householders.”

Bertha Park scheme will be carried out in phases over 30 years, and is anticipated to create more than 2,000 jobs.
