Plans unveiled for 500-600 homes ‘coastal community’ in Aberdeen
A new community of hundreds of homes has been proposed for a coastal Aberdeen suburb.
Cognito Oak LLP has lodged a new application for between 500 and 600 new homes, including affordable units, a variety of different shops, community features, a recycling centre and new roads at land to the east of the A90 on Ellon Road in Bridge of Don.
Aberdeen City Council will make a final decision on the Cloverhill plans after a public consultation.
Architects Halliday Fraser Munro, planning consultants for the application, said: “The site is located to the northeast of Bridge of Don, at Ellon Road.
“The surrounding urban area currently benefits from having a mix of employment, residential and commercial uses.
“A range of other uses would also be provided including the provision of local shops and services (eg small-scale retail, food & drink or service uses) to create a sustainable mixed use coastal community within the city.
“The proposed new uses allow for improved placemaking and overall sustainability of this location by collocating uses that can complement and support one another.”
The public will get the chance to view the proposals for Cloverhill at a consultation event planned for Tuesday February 26 at St Columba’s Church in Bridge of Don.
The drop-in exhibition will be manned by members of the design team who will deal with any queries.
There will be a number of display panels that provide background to the site, illustrate the proposals and explain the planning process.
