Plans for new homes at Bridge of Don.

Aberdeen residents will today get the chance to have their say on plans to build hundreds of new homes in part of the city.

Cognito Oak LLP has lodged an application to build between 500 and 600 properties near the coast at Bridge of Don, along with accompanying community facilities.

People are now being encouraged to air their views on the development during a consultation session at St Columba’s Church on Braehead Way from 1pm to 8pm today.

The proposals for the land east of Ellon Road at Cloverhill and Murcar include efforts to meet demands for affordable housing by ensuring that “at least” 25% of the properties fit that description.

A new signalised junction with pedestrian toucan crossings and a reduced speed limit has also been suggested and the community facilities mooted include parks, play areas, a recycling centre, a community centre, shops and cafes.

Nick Harris, of Cognito Oak LLP, said: “People in the Bridge of Don are wondering where their children and grandchildren will find homes in future and there is a well-documented need for new housing.

“We hope that Cloverhill can make a positive contribution towards the ambitious housing targets set at both a local and national level.

“We look forward to engaging with the public in order to understand the type of housing and community facilities that are most important to them, to help refine our plans and ensure that this development can positively contribute towards the wider Bridge of Don area.

“Our desire to invest in Aberdeen has been driven by faith in the resilience of the local economy and a belief that a strong market recovery is currently underway.”
