These detailed plans are part of the wider 2,500 home masterplan. The housebuilders have been working closely with the Council to design a new village covering 204 hectares – roughly the size of 167 football pitches.
Springfield Chairman Sandy Adam said, “Moray Sports Centre will be in the heart of the village with meeting rooms, a coffee shop, soft play areas and a state of the art gym, it will quickly become a central hub for the community.
“There will be energy efficient housing, 25 per cent of which will be affordable helping meet Moray Council’s affordable housing targets. Children will benefit from two new schools and the new Moray Sports Centre on their doorstep.”
