More than 30 new homes could be created in a tiny village to meet the growing need for houses in the area.
Peterhead firm Claymore Homes revealed plans to develop land in the fishing community of Cairnbulg earlier this year and has now lodged a bid to build the properties off Rathen Road, dubbed the Westhaven development.
The 37-property scheme includes proposals to gift some of the land at the site to the local church so worshipers can extend their car park.
Space has also been earmarked within the development for affordable homes and a play park.
In a design statement submitted alongside the scheme, a spokesman for Claymore has written the homes are a “logical” step forward in the village’s growth.
“The vision for this site and how it has developed is very much led by the landowner who wishes to see a development created with a sense of place with connections to the settlement of Cairnbulg and Inverallochy,” he added.
