Accommodation for 500 students could be built on land close to an Aberdeen university.
A Proposal of Application Notice has been lodged with Aberdeen City Council for the development of 500 student flats.
The project is being classed as a major development.
It is proposed for land to the west of Robert Gordon University in Garthdee.
Paul O’Connor, chairman of Inchgarth Community Centre in Garthdee, said: “Anything that frees up the houses in multiple occupation in my community is a positive thing.
“The number of HMOs around here is significant compared to other ares of the city.”
However, he warned that any plans should include considerable investment into the community in the area.
He added: “They need to put a significant, real investment in our community groups.
“Whatever goes on here they need to listen to the community.
“What this community would be looking for is major investment going back into the community.
“They can’t keep building and building and not giving anything back.
“I would urge councillors to make sure that as part of any conditions, something significant is put back into the community.
“The biggest concern is access and support for the community in terms of amenity and proper infrastructure.”
