Robertson Partnership Homes plans 138 affordable Aberdeen homes

St Machar RoadPlans have been submitted for 138 affordable urban homes in four blocks of flats at St Machar Road in Aberdeen.

The proposals have been put forward by Robertson Partnership Homes and Grampian Housing Association.

Craig Stirrat, director of business development at Grampian Housing Association, told our sister publication Scottish Housing News: “Like all housing associations in the North East, Grampian Housing Association is committed to contributing to the delivery of Aberdeen City Council and Scottish Government targets to increase the provision of affordable housing for rent. In particular we are keen to support the local community and make Tillydrone a great place to live.”

St Machar Road 2The scheme will offer private south facing courtyards, include public open space and a tree-lined avenue connecting to a new floodlit games area.

It is designed to offer strong street frontages and screen homes from neighbouring industrial land.

Architects Halliday Fraser Munro explained: “We have looked at several options and layouts to visually break long elevations into smaller widths with pushing forward prominent feature gables and expressing these elements with higher ‘tower’ parapet detailing.”

Each block will be faced in a mix of buff brick and metal standing seam.
