A tree-planting ceremony marked the start of Culbokie Community Trust’s work on Culbokie Green.

Local amenities are set to be rolled out in the wake of a successful new homes development.

Tulloch Homes has sold its entire development of 25 bungalows at Glascairn Meadows while a deal has been struck with Cairn Housing to build 14 affordable homes, six of which will be on land the trust acquired under the Community Right to Buy scheme in 2015.

Tulloch has also been a key partner, along with Sustrans, in developing an active travel route intended to link Culbokie Green to the rest of the village.

Trust chairman Richard Fyfe said: “This is a unique partnership, working extremely well between Tulloch, Cairn, Sustrans and ourselves, a real model for the future.

“Culbokie Green, owned by the trust but laid out by Tulloch, is contoured in a way that adds character to the village.

“We’ll be doing further tree planting and adding wildflower meadows by the spring, plus benches and signs, an informal children’s play area, community orchard and a shelter with an open-air table tennis table.

“The second phase, subject to funding, is to erect a community hub building, with café, which can also be used as a meeting room and can be used for multi-purpose local activities.”

Kieran Graham, commercial director of Tulloch Homes, said: “The trust people have been a pleasure to work with and I’m sure their innovative efforts will further enhance the attraction of the village.”
