CONCERNS have been raised about road safety following the approval for more than 300 new North-east homes.
Campaigners are cautioning that the 310-home development in Laurencekirk will put more pressure on an already dangerous junction.
Jill Fotheringham has led the campaign against the expansion before a flyover is in place.
She said she was shocked that councillors had unanimously backed the plans without any commitment to the Laurencekirk south junction with the A90.
The Kirkwood Homes development will see 310 houses, 77 of which will be classed as affordable, built at Conveth Mains.
Work on the site is due to start this year.
The unanimous approval of the plans by councillors came despite objections relating to the effect on the neighbouring north and south junctions onto the A90.
Residents have been seeking action on the A937, Laurencekirk to Marykirk, and A90 junction for a number of years.
Now, with hundreds of new homes in the area, the worry is that things will get worse.
