Chapelton, Aberdeen

A sustainable new community and way of life.

About Chapelton

Chapelton is being developed by the Elsick Development Company (EDC), an organisation created by local landowners with a vision to support Aberdeenshire’s need for new housing with a truly inspirational new community. Those behind EDC are determined to create a historic legacy on this land that will be enjoyed and respected forever. 

The masterplan for Chapelton follows the principles of New Urbanism, a movement promoting the development of walkable, mixed-use communities as an alternative to conventional suburban development. World renowned masterplanner Andres Duany of Duany Plater-Zyberk designed  Chapelton, working alongside a team of local architects and engineers, as well as the Aberdeenshire community, whose opinions helped shaped the world-class design.

The Chapelton masterplan is inspired by the vibrant urban settlements of northeast Scotland, such as Montrose, Stonehaven and St Andrews. Like those historic towns, Chapelton will include many types and styles of homes, both traditional and modern, within walking distance of attractive parks and community facilities.

Local area

Five miles south of one of the UK’s most affluent cities, Aberdeen, Chapelton is a new generation town.

Our exemplary masterplan has learnt lessons from the past while designing a settlement for modern living. With a total of 8,000 homes to be built in seven neighbourhoods, each with its own school and high street, Chapelton’s design creates a sense of community, where people can work, socialise, exercise and live well in a safe, fulfilling environment.

Chapelton is the first large development in Scotland to secure fibre broadband to home, meaning it is ready for next generation technologies for home and business. And with 40 per cent green space, including parkland, woodland and local parks the topography of the development allows residents to enjoy uninterrupted views of the countryside and the Aberdeenshire coast.
