Plans for 106 new homes to be built at Linkwood farm in Elgin, have been given the go ahead by planners.

Moray councillors at committee unanimously approved the project, covering 12 acres by Linkwood distillery Tuesday 14th June.

The clock tower built on the land in the 19th Century, although a recognisable feature in the area, has become a hazard over the years. Springfield plans to revitalise this local landmark, by sensitively restoring the frontage and convert it into three 3 bedroom homes.

A range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes – including the award winning Huntly house style – will be built alongside the historic landmark.

Land Director Kenny Shand has said:

“The planning approval for the 106 homes at Linkwood is great news for us. This project is particularly exciting as we have the opportunity to restore the existing farm steading, incorporating the distinctive character of the historic building into the development. It is an important local feature that should be preserved. We are creating a new lease of life for a well loved landmark.”

 Within the next 6 months Springfield expect to be working on site to build a range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes.
