Bancon Homes will build 208 new homes in the west of Aberdeen after obtaining planning approval from the city council.

Plans to build hundreds of homes in Aberdeen have been hailed as a boost for the local economy in “challenging times”.

Bancon Homes will develop land at Maidencraig South near Lang Stracht in the west of the city, after permission was granted by Aberdeen City Council.

The freshly approved proposal for 208 properties comprises a mix of 172 private homes ranging from two to four-bedroom apartments, terraced, semi-detached and detached homes, as well as 36 affordable homes.

Bancon already has 40 homes under construction on the north side of the Lang Stracht, and the new houses will be built on the other side of the thoroughfare, opposite Dobbies Garden Centre.

Situated to the south of the A944 Aberdeen to Westhill road, the development is the latest phase of an approved masterplan which will comprise around 825 homes.

Bancon believes the development will prove popular with young families, couples and those downsizing, citing its “unique mix of excellent connectivity and countryside views”.

As part of its planning obligations, Bancon will contribute around £1 million to Aberdeen’s economy, funding community, healthcare and school facilities in the area as well as improving roads and upgrading the path network.

Managing Director of Bancon Homes, Allan Clow, said: “We are delighted that Aberdeen City Council has approved our planning application for Maidencraig South.

“In these challenging times, this will not only allow us to build beautiful homes for our customers, but also make a significant commitment and investment in the local Aberdeen economy while providing additional security for our employees and opportunities for our supply chain.

“We also welcome the temporary changes to the land and buildings transaction tax introduced by the Scottish Government.

“While we continue to see a good level of buying interest, we hope that this will provide a further boost to homebuyers and give them further confidence to make their next purchase.”

Bancon has a range of developments in Aberdeen, Mintlaw and Banchory.
