for an ambitious scheme for a southern ‘New Town’ in Perth consisting of a plan of grand Georgian terraces along similar lines to Master Planner Robert Reid’s northern extension of Edinburgh’s New Town including Drummond Place and Great King Street. The Marshall Place blocks, albeit in a scaled down form, are the foremost representatives of a plan to reach fruition.

It has a population of 50,000 and has historically enjoyed a diverse and strong economy with a balance of large companies, public sector companies and self-employed businesses operating in the city. There are many primary and secondary schools to choose from in the area.
