Plans have been unveiled to create a new nursery and food shop in an Aberdeen suburb.
The proposals have been brought forward by Scotia Homes for the Dubford area of Bridge of Don as part of the next phase of the development, which also includes 18 more homes.
Initial work has already started on widening the B999 Denmore junction near the area’s B&Q as well as the realignment of the B997 Shielhill Road junction to cope with more traffic to the area.
Almost 100 properties in the area have been notified of the plans, including those who live in Corse Drive, Shielhill Avenue and Perwinnes Crescent.
The proposed nursery would be close to the main entrance junction to Dubford from the north but it’s not known how many children will be able to attend.
Four retail units including a food shop are to be located opposite.
A statement on behalf of Scotia Homes said work to improve nearby junctions will help to ease traffic problems in the area.
It said: “A number of schemes have already been implemented to mitigate the identified development impact.
“The majority of these schemes are relatively minor in nature and will also mitigate the development’s impact following completion of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.”
