A former school site in Aberdeen could be transformed by the building of 350 new affordable homes.
The old Summerhill School plot on Lang Stracht could be used to help alleviate the city’s housing shortage.
Councillors will be asked at a full council meeting today to consider striking a deal with a housebuilder instead of selling off the land.
Councillor Willie Young, finance convener at Aberdeen City Council, said: “Our strategic infrastructure plan is really important for the city and its citizens and we need to move forward on its as quickly as we can.”
The Labour-led administration has pledged to oversee the building of 2,000 affordable homes across the city as part of the strategic infrastructure plan.
The properties are expected to range from one-bedroom flats to family homes. The development, if approved, is likely to be made up of a mix of homes for sale and rent.
The site had been due to be developed by supermarket chain Morrisons. It withdrew its plans in the summer.
