Green light for 12 new homes in Macduff
Plans for 12 new homes in Macduff have been given the go-ahead by Aberdeenshire Council.
Businesswoman Elaine Duthie had submitted plans to turn a former dry cleaners into flats.
According to the Evening Express, the plans were originally launched in 2013 and members of the Banff and Buchan area committee delegated the authority to grant the application to local authority planners.
A previous proposal for 15 homes at the site at the corner of Market Street and Skene Street were refused and an appeal was also dismissed.
In a design statement drawn up by architects Mantell Ritchie, the development is described as “unique” to Macduff and would offer high-quality one and two-bedroom homes at affordable prices.
A decision notice said: “The development would not be out of place as there were comparable buildings in close proximity, and there is a need for affordable housing.”
