Plans have been lodged for almost 100 affordable homes to be built.
Robertson Partnership Homes and Kemnay Properties are looking to construct 49 new homes on Aquithie Road and Bremner Way in Kemnay.
The properties would be built on vacant land near Kemnay Academy.
If the proposal, which has been lodged with Aberdeenshire Council, is approved it would include 25, one- and two-bedroom flats, 23, two- three- and four-bedroom houses and one three-bedroom bungalow.
Planning statements from agent Halliday Fraser Munro on behalf of the developers said: “The proposal includes housing for varying needs to ensure all housing needs are met.
“The housing mix and tenure has been discussed with the local authority’s housing department.
“The proposal is a sustainable solution to redevelop this site which has lain vacant for a number of years, and proposes a development in line with designing streets.
“The development encompasses shared surfaces, with all roads designed to be 5mph or less.
“This means that the street spaces will form multi-purpose areas which can be used for recreation.”
The agent goes on to say that if approved the development would help with the demand for housing in Aberdeenshire and there had been “limited affordable housing completions in Kemnay in recent years”.
Meanwhile, plans for affordable housing in Stonehaven have also been submitte.
Kirkwood Homes hopes to build 47 properties on land at Ury.
It would include 26 houses and 21 flats.
The developer is also hoping to build more than 170 homes at the nearby East Lodge site.
However, the Health and Safety Executive has said there are safety grounds against approving this proposal due to the nearby Forties oil pipeline.
Members of the public have until March 22 to comment on the proposals with Aberdeenshire Council.
