Bilbohall, Elgin Public Consultation


Proposed residential development of around 376 homes on the western edge of Elgin.

The Bilbohall site is a distinctive and well-contained series of linked parcels of land to the west of Elgin which has the potential to be developed as a high quality new residential neighbourhood. The site benefits from unique topography and mature landscape setting which has been sensitively considered through a careful and robust masterplan process. The vision is for these unique qualities to be integrated into carefully designed housing areas which have a character and identity that reflects and enhances the existing nature of the site.

Bilbohall will provide a variety of housing types and tenures set within a high-quality landscape setting. New multi-functional open space will be provided including a neighbourhood park and pocket park. Existing pedestrian and cycle routes will be enhanced and extended through new woodland areas which will offer both more habitat areas and amenity spaces for residents and visitors.

The new street network will be permeable and connected, designed to work with the existing topography to ensure that the impact on existing knolls is controlled and limited as far as possible. Additional structural planting on slopes will serve to further contain the site and reinforce the existing character of wooded knolls. Street trees and hedgerows along key routes will create green corridors which balance with the new building elements and the density of the new residential areas reflects the existing slopes and aspect.
