Fresh plans lodged for Rubislaw Quarry flats development



The developer behind a failed bid for hundreds of homes at Aberdeen’s historic Rubislaw Quarry has submitted new plans for the site.

Carttera’s previous plans for the quarry were rejected last year 

Canadian firm Carttera has lodged a proposal of application notice to Aberdeen City Council for 250 private flats, gym, function room, public bistro and promenade along the north side of the quarry.

The one, two and three-bedroom flats would be located opposite a new centre showcasing the heritage of the historic site.

Carttera had a £68 million plan for 300 flats and a public promenade at the site rejected by the local authority’s planning committee last summer.

Dr Maggie Bochel of Aurora Planning, which has submitted the application on behalf of the developer, said: “We are delighted to be looking at a substantially-revised scheme for this site which reflects comments made on the previous proposals from last year.

“We look forward to answering any queries at our public consultation event next month.”

A public consultation event will be held at the Treetops Hotel in Springfield Road on 20 November from noon until 19:00.
