Plans have been approved to build 130 affordable homes within an industrial estate.
Stewart Milne Homes submitted proposals to construct the properties at 34-40 Abbotswell Road in West Tullos Industrial Estate.
The land was most recently in industrial use but the developer wants to build the affordable homes on the site, spread across four buildings.
Planners have approved the application subject to conditions, arguing the site is zoned as an “opportunity site for residential development”.
They added that some trees would need to be removed to build the development but that a “significant amount” of replacement planting would take place.
A total of 23 conditions have been attached to the consent including one which stipulates the development must comprise solely of affordable housing and another that an environmental plan must be submitted.
