100-home Aberdeen community plans discussed as block of flats approved
Councillors in Aberdeen have approved plans to build a new three-storey block of flats and agreed to determine separate proposals for a new community of more than 100 homes at a later date.
Plans for the six flats were submitted by George Taylor ASA for the garden ground at 44/46 Bedford Road.
The block will now be allowed to be built in the current garden space.
Elsewhere, Parklands View LLP submitted an application for the former Silverburn House site in Bridge of Don, which would see between 100 and 150 houses and flats created if approved.
Planners recommended that Aberdeen City Council’s planning development management committee, which met this morning, should be subject to a statutory pre-determination hearing at a special meeting of the committee.
It would then be determined at a later date in a subsequent meeting.
Councillors unanimously voted to back this recommendation.
The application is looking for planning permission for the homes, as well as commercial floorspace which could include retail, professional services and food and drink uses, as well as associated works including landscaping and formation of roads.
Councillors will come back at a later date to discuss the application again.
