Will there be shops in this area? Will it include a large supermarket?
Chapelton will provide local services proportionate in scale with the new settlement to encourage local shopping. Retail units will be open to all retailers to promote diversity and choice.
Chapelton’s first neighbourhood, Cairnhill, will include a small supermarket in the neighbourhood centre close to the primary school, Cairnhill Park and other shops. Unlike recent developments, the supermarket will be located on the neighbourhood high street to enable residents to shop without a car and to prevent them from being drawn out of town at the expense of a vibrant high street.
