A NEW village near Perth will bring 30 years of work and hundreds of jobs, according to developers.

House builder Springfield properties is creating Bertha Park with 3,000 homes just off the Inveralmond Roundabout.

There will also be a purpose built high school with a capacity of up to 1,100 pupils and a range of sports facilities.

A primary school will also be introduced within the grounds at a later date, according to the plans.

The 333 hectare area will also offer shops, restaurants, medical services, leisure and community facilities which will create business opportunities.

The availability of shops and amenities will grow organically in line with local demand. The two key public spaces, the School Square and the High Street Square, located on either side of the Cross-Tay Link Road, will be linked by an east-west foot and cycle path.

Phase one will also feature allotments which will be available to residents within the development and will be run through the community.

For the first five years, Springfield will fund a regular bus route linking Bertha Park with the wider community.

Tricia Malek, sales director, said: “After spending five years developing the plan for Bertha Park we are excited to begin bringing the vision for the new Perth village to life.

“Our sales office opens on Saturday, September 23, and with it the first 18 of homes will go on sale. Customers will also be able to see a 3D scale model of the first phase of over 1,000 homes which really puts the size of the village in context. They’ll also be able view interactive floor plans of the house styles on offer.

“New home buyers will benefit from Springfield’s promise to build an individual home, which includes everything our customers need to move into a complete home, from the full range of kitchen appliances, fitted wardrobes and carpets, to turf and even the garden tap.”
