Page\Park lands green light for Inverness new town

Page\Park Architects has won outline planning permission for a £500 million new town at Stratton Farm outside Inverness, Scotland

Planned to be built over the next 20 years, the 80-hectare development will feature 2,500 homes, schools, two churches, an 8,000m² superstore and a civic square. The first phase of 300 houses is expected to start on site next year.

Andrew Bateman, associate director at the practice, said: ‘[It’s] a new town development building on a rich tradition of urban town planning which seeks to root the place in its context.

‘The way we worked the masterplan was to provide views right into the land of the development and out to the coast.’

The private sector-backed development will also feature a park & ride serving the A96 access road to Inverness.

Developer Mark Shaw of Inverness Estates said: ‘The economic and social benefits that this development can deliver will be especially important at a time when the impact of the recession is still being felt hard, major public sector cutbacks are round the corner and many jobs will simply disappear.’
