A public exhibition is to be held later this month on major development proposals for an area on the northern edge of Elgin.
A masterplan for the 112 hectare Findrassie site has been approved by Moray councillors.
The development proposals will now go on display at Moray College’s Alexander Graham Bell Centre in Elgin on Monday, September 14 from 3pm to 8pm as part of a public consultation.
Staff from Moray Council’s planning and development section will be on hand, as will representatives of the landowners, Pitgaveny.
Findrassie will be developed over the next 20 to 30 years and the masterplan includes provision for around 1500 new homes, a school, a range of community facilities and open spaces as well as land which will be developed for business.
It will represent a major northward expansion of the Elgin settlement boundary and will stretch from Duffus Road in the west to the A941 Elgin-Lossiemouth road in the east.
Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 92,500 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.
Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.
Headquartered in Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
