Work has now started on a new North-east retirement village.
Construction on the Liberty Retirement Village at Chapelton has kicked-off, with an estimated date of completion for the first phase in late 2019.
Ground clearing work to prepare the foundations for 94 new one and two-bedroom apartments began this week.
Designed for the over 55s and with a community hub, Liberty Chapelton will bring a range of features to the village, including a new brasserie and green outdoor spaces.
It is the first retirement village from Liberty and will connect to the existing community in the area.
The Duke of Fife, director of Elsick Development Company, said: “Since its early planning stages, Chapelton has always been conceived as a town for all ages to work, live and enjoy.
“The arrival of Liberty’s retirement village is an important stage in the town’s ongoing development, connecting a new generation to the existing community in Chapelton.”
