Plans have been unveiled for the expansion of a village – which could boost the population by 20%.
Claymore Homes wants to build 200 homes in Cruden Bay, near Peterhead.
The developer has teamed up with architects Baxter Design to draw up a masterplan, which includes space for a railway line should hopes to reopen the Buchan line come to fruition.
It is the first step in developing the expansion plans for the village, which were first mooted in 2009.
Under the plans, the development off Aulton Road and Golf Road will be built in two phases, with 80 homes and employment land for shops to help nurture the village’s economy.
