600-home Kintore East proposal back on the table
A consortium of housebuilders has resurrected plans to build 600 homes in Kintore.
Planning permission in principle was given for the Kintore East scheme, on a site known locally as Tuach Hill, in 2015.
Now the Kintore Consortium, made up of Kirkwood Homes, Barratt Homes and Malcolm Allan Housebuilders, is behind a fresh application.
The land at Kintore East has been identified for a residential-led, mixed-use development since its first inclusion in the Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan (LDP) in 2012.
When planning permission in principle was granted there was a condition in place that required the submission of all applications for Matters Specified in Conditions (MSC) to be made within six years.
In normal circumstances, permission would have expired on September 3, 2021 but the process remains live as time limits were extended due to the pandemic.
