The £2bn development on the Elsick estate, near Newtonhill, Aberdeenshire, will contain 8,000 homes.
Gavin Murray, town architect, of Brooks Murray Architects said: ‘It is important Chapelton sits comfortably in the Aberdeenshire landscape, so we have drawn heavily from the best precedents set by a number of neighbouring historic towns and villages, including Stonehaven and Banchory.’
Work started on site in October 2013.
