A developer has visited an Aberdeen community council to discuss plans for a potential development of 700 homes in the area.
CALA Homes was presenting its plan for the Derbeth area of Kingswells.
The Westhill-based developer was seeking residents’ feedback before asking the city council to include the scheme in the Local Development Plan.
CALA wants to build up to 700 homes, as well as a primary school, which would double as a community campus.
It is also looking to cut the speed of local traffic and create two additional crossing points on Fairley Road, which runs alongside Kingswells in a bid “to make it safer for pedestrians”.
Speaking after Monday’s presentation, Mike Naysmith, managing director of CALA Homes in the North of Scotland, said: “Our team met the local community council to outline our plans for a Local Development Plan bid being submitted to Aberdeen City Council later this month for land at Derbeth, Kingswells.
“If taken forward, this development would enhance connectivity between Kingswells and the surrounding area, in particular creating a safer link to Brimmond Country Park.
“It would also offer a number of wider benefits, including slowing traffic on Fairley Road to make it safer for pedestrians, providing a new school and community hub, and the creation of parks and public gardens.
“We look forward to the outcome of the bid and to working with the local community to help shape the potential new community if the proposal is progressed.”
If accepted, the development would take place over 20 years, with a variety of houses, flats and amenities being built in the area.
The bid is likely to be submitted to Aberdeen City Council on May 28.
Kingswells Community Council members raised issues about the height of the homes, the noise from the Aberdeen bypass and traffic issues caused by the creation of 700 homes, which the CALA representatives said they would take on board.
