Carnoustie Project is Great News for AngusNeil Hardie
After 15 years of hard work Angus property developer DJ Laing has begun development on a Carnoustie business park.
The multi-million pound project will see the construction of modern units offering new and existing businesses a fresh location to operate from.
Victoria Green is located on the western gateway to Carnoustie.
It will house a mixture of small, medium and large units which can be built to occupier specification.
The development could generate an estimated £20 million worth of investment to the local economy.
It is also hoped businesses setting up will lead to more Angus jobs being created.
The project comes after collaboration between DJ Laing and the late Heinz Voigt of the Voigt Partnership.
It is being lauded as an encouraging partnership for the area.
David Laing, chairman of DJ Laing, believes the project offers Carnoustie something new.
He said: “We are delighted to finally bring this project and our latest investment plans to fruition and create high-quality business and industrial space in Carnoustie.
“Victoria Green will provide businesses with an opportunity to relocate and thrive in a superb location that offers so much more than just a base for business.”
The plans received planning consent in February 2021 and the project is part of a larger development plan proposed by DJ Laing.
The joint venture partner, Persimmon Homes North Scotland, will provide mainstream and much-needed affordable housing in Carnoustie.
The housing development looks to generate an estimated £50 million worth of investment.
Small units will be available this spring at the 14-acre-site.
Councillor Mark McDonald, Angus Council’s economic development spokesman, said: “We continue to experience a high demand for prime industrial and business space in Angus.
“One of the key priorities for Angus Council is to make Angus ‘a go-to place for business’.
“Our current commercial units/properties have a high occupancy rate.
“The new business park at Victoria Green in Carnoustie is great news for Angus.”
