New Urbanism Coming To Scotland

Andres Duany has been contracted to work in Scotland for the first time.

"An Internationally renowned planning expert who is helping to rebuild Louisiana and Mississippi following devastating hurricanes is to turn his attention to a new town in the Highlands.

Florida-based Andres Duany will help draw up the blueprint for a community between Inverness and Nairn."

"Mr. Duany was appointed by Moray Estates, which plans to build about 5,000 houses, schools, shops and other services on a 350-acre site near Tornagrain, south of the A96 trunk road. Lord Doune, of Moray Estates, said of Mr Duany: 'He's a leader in his field and it's a privilege for us to be working with him.'"
