PLANS have been lodged to create a new supermarket and petrol station in a North-east town.
Developers Sluie Estate Trust confirmed its development at the Mains of Ury in Stonehaven will include a single-storey food store, with 280 parking spaces and a petrol station.
The front of the store and the petrol station will be situated close to a new access road into the development, off the B979 Stonehaven to Peterculter road.
The lodging of the plans with Aberdeenshire Council comes after more than 100 people attended a public exhibition, which was held at Stonehaven’s St Bridget’s Church Hall.
Rival supermarket plans for Stonehaven have been rejected in recent months due to concerns, including the impact the proposals would have on the town centre and the landscape.
But a new retail assessment, which has been produced on behalf of Sluie Estate Trust, says the proposals would not result in town centre shops having to close.
