Plans have been lodged for several hundred new houses to the west of Aberdeen, with the developer pledging that it will bring a £1 million boost to the local economy.
Bancon Homes has asked Aberdeen City Council for permission to build 208 houses on a plot of land opposite Dobbies Garden Centre on Lang Stracht.
The plans comprise of 172 private properties including apartments with between two and four bedrooms, and terraced, semi-detached and detached homes.
And 36 affordable houses will be built as part of the project.
Bancon’s proposals make up the latest phase in a wider 825-home masterplan, which also includes commercial and retail units.
It has already constructed 128 homes at its Eden and The Reserve developments, and work is under way on 40 more properties to the north of Lang Stracht.
As part of its planning obligations, Bancon Homes will contribute approximately £1m to the local economy, in addition to the affordable houses.
The developer will help to fund community, healthcare and school facilities, and upgrades to roads and paths.
Bancon Homes managing director Allan Clow said: “We are delighted to apply for planning permission for the next phase of our new homes to the west of Aberdeen.
“This location has already proved popular with young families, couples and downsizers who have benefitted from its unique mix of fantastic connectivity and countryside views.”
