Plans have been lodged for 46 new houses and business space in Udny
MRT Architects submitted the scheme to Aberdeenshire Council on behalf of JNF Developments, who hope to build a variety of home styles across two sites.
At the first site, located on the north-eastern side of Udny Station, 38 houses have been proposed alongside six live/work units.
The second site, where a former cafe and garage once stood, would be used to vcreate eight affordable homes, including flats and semi-detached properties, as well as two business units.
A public consultation event was held over the plans on January , at Udny Station Community Centre.
While feedback was “reasonably positive”, residents did raise concerns on the development’s potential impact on the setting of Udny Station and the homes’ effect on the village.
A further meeting was held with a group of residents from the adjacent Woodlea development and changes requested incorporated into a new layout presented with the planning application.
Documents state: “The houses would blend naturally with the established landscape character and vernacular of the area, and provide characterful, modern additions to the village.
“The main issues raised under the previous planning application have been addressed within the current submission.
“The development of the entire site has meant that pedestrian connectivity to both the village and the Formartine and Buchan Way has now been provided.
“Live/work units have been incorporated into the proposals which addresses the requirement for business units noted within the local plan.”
