Housing plans for vacant Aberdeen papermill plot

Proposed view from North Deeside Road

Detailed plans have been lodged to develop more than 100 new homes on the site of a disused papermill plot in Aberdeen.

Gordon Investment Corporation has submitted a full planning application with Aberdeen City Council to build around 112 homes off Cornyhaugh Road, Peterculter.

The proposed development would provide a mix of private, affordable and retirement housing.

A design statement by Space Solutions, agents for the application, said the proposals would “provide opportunities” for older residents to “downsize” and young couples to move up from flats to accommodate families.

It added: “The proposals are for the redevelopment of a former brownfield landfill site, which would provide an extension to an existing community which will have the effect of sustaining the local primary school, local shops and services in the area.

“The density of the proposed development will deliver the house-types which are most needed in the local community helping to fill the gap between the many smaller one to two bedroom flatted developments and the larger detached executive housing developments in the community.”

The plans show there would be a mix of assisted living apartments, houses and bungalows for private sale to the over-55s, private houses for sale and rent, and affordable homes from one to three bedrooms.
