Scotland Unveils Plans For an Eco Village


Aberdeenshire is to be home to Scotland’s first sustainable village, and the general public will be able to give their feeback during an open consultation period.  

Kincluny Village is aiming to be carbon neutral by providing affordable homes that benefit from renewable energy systems. To ensure the community is self-sufficient, residents will have the opportunity to work on-site, be it in local businesses or schools.

Built on a former quarry brownfield site, it will be the largest sustainable construction project of its kind, offering properties that will not only be affordable but desirable. With more than 1,500 homes being built – ranging in price from £90,000 to £500,000, it’s expected that 30% of the mixed tenure homes will be affordable for those on low incomes.

Kincluny is unlike any other development. It’s not all about the buildings. Bricks and mortar come later. It’s about creating a community where people want to live and work,” said Bill Burr, managing director at CHAP Homes.

“We’re excited about sharing our mission with the public during the consultation period. Their feedback is essential to further the vision,” he added.

The Robert Gordon University’s Centre for Understanding Sustainable Practices has been commissioned to provide research into water, sewage and renewables such as wind power.

Currently the north-east of Scotland is facing a housing shortage, and this project is set to pioneer a new era of housing developments.
