Plans submitted for £150m mixed-use project in Aberdeenshire

WCN Editorial Team 29 Mar 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Developers Ashfield Land and local house builder Kirkwood Homes have submitted plans to Aberdeenshire Council for a new £150m mixed-use development.

The site for the proposed construction is located five miles north of Aberdeen. It was allocated for future development in the 2012 Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan (LDP).

If approved, the plans will bring to life the Blackdog Masterplan that was approved by the council in 2013, calling for a new town centre with business space and substantial additional housing.

Ashfield Land and Kirkwood Homes have been refining the proposals since late 2015, and after detailed consultation with local residents and community representatives.

The proposed development will include the construction of a new town centre, with around 600 homes, including 150 affordable homes, to accommodate around 2,100 residents.

It will also include offices, industrial accommodation, a regional food hall, a supermarket, a petrol station, a hotel, a cinema, shops, a park and ride facility and also a primary school.

Subject to Aberdeenshire Council’s approval, construction will begin in early 2017 and will be delivered in partnership with major stakeholders including Aberdeenshire Council and the local community.

The project is expected to create 1,200 jobs during construction and 1,500 full time jobs after completion.
