A developer has lodged detailed plans to build a new residential development of more than 100 homes in Aberdeen.
Gordon Investment Corporation has submitted a full planning application with Aberdeen City Council to build the proposed development off Cornyhaugh Road, Peterculter.
The plans, for around 112 homes, would provide a mix of private, affordable and retirement housing.
A design statement by Space Solutions, agents for the application, said the proposals would “provide opportunities” for older residents to “downsize” and young couples to move up from flats to accommodate families.
It added: “The proposals are for the redevelopment of a former brownfield landfill site, which would provide an extension to an existing community which will have the effect of sustaining the local primary school, local shops and services in the area.
“The density of the proposed development will deliver the house-types which are most needed in the local community helping to fill the gap between the many smaller one to two bedroom flatted developments and the larger detached executive housing developments in the community.”
The plans show there would be a mix of assisted living apartments, houses and bungalows for private sale to the over-55s, private houses for sale and rent, and affordable homes from one to three bedrooms.
The planning statement for the application said the proposed site was previously used by a papermill and is “mostly brownfield land”.
The plans also state there was previously a farm and associated outbuildings in the west area although this appears to have gone by the mid 1960s.
To the north of the site is the Culter football club Crombie Park pitches and to the east of the site there is a mix of two-storey private houses and two-storey social housing terraces on Crombie Circle and Cornyhaugh Road.
The proposals will include the provision of a cycle and pedestrian route via Cornyhaugh Road and Malcolm Road to the village services.
The design statement added: “Current use of the site by dirt-bikers are a nuisance to the community and to wildlife in the area and the community and ecologists will be pleased that use discontinues.”
Public access to footpaths leading through the greenspace will also be retained.
