The Oldmeldrum and Peterhead developments were designed by Aberdeenshire Council, while the “design and build” project at Inverurie was part of a developer contribution arrangement towards affordable housing.
The new properties formed part of the sixth phase of the local authority’s new-build housing programme, which saw a total of 151 new homes built across 11 sites over the past year.
The projects represent an investment of almost £11 million across the three communities and were supported by Scottish Government funding.
