Aberdeen details plans for more than 200 homes at former school site



Aberdeen City Council has lodged detailed plans to build 213 homes for rent on the site of the former Kincorth Academy.

The development off Cairngorm Drive will comprise a mix of unit types with shared residential streets, parking and external amenities.

Kincorth Academy closed in summer 2018 after a new multi-million-pound school was built at Lochside, bringing together pupils from Kincorth and Torry. 

Led by Atkins and Rankin Fraser, the development is one of several sites across Aberdeen which form part of the wider Aberdeen City Council Housing Programme 2020 aiming to address a long-term shortage of affordable social rented housing in the city.

A planning application has been submitted for 99 homes to be built in the Craighill area, with another for 72 new council homes in Tillydrone due to be submitted shortly.
