Neil Findlay, UK Development Director of EG Group, said: “We are pleased to have commenced construction of our Petrol Filling Station at Portlethen, which is ideally located in a prominent position, visible from one of the busiest road networks in the Northeast of Scotland. We are set to complete phase one by the end of this year and look forward to welcoming customers to our site.”

In recent years City South has continued to buck the trend by attracting new residents and we have a number of exciting announcements coming soon.”
