Moray Council gives green light for £500m Springfield Properties regeneration in Elgin

A Scottish council has approved plans for a £500m village to be built in Elgin, county Moray.

Moray Council has approved plans for Springfield Properties to build 2,500 homes, two schools and a £12m sports centre.

The housebuilder has worked with the council over the past year to expand the city of Elgin by 204 ha.

A planning application for the first phase of the development has been submitted to the council and a decision will be made early next year.

Springfield Properties has built more than 900 homes in a separate scheme in Moray.

The group is also delivering 100 apartment and homes in Motherwell to the south of Glasgow.

Meanwhile, Chinese property developer Evergrande is in talks to buy Scottish-based house builder Cala.

It is understood the Chinese firm is hoping to expand into the UK housebuilding market by taking over the luxury housebuilder.
