A series of projects valued at £950million are expected to be approved by councillors on Thursday as the local authority sets its capital plan for the next 15 years.
The package, which proposes improvements to health, the economy and lifelong learning schemes across Aberdeenshire, will be delivered over each financial year to 2030.
Alan Wood, the council’s head of finance, said officials had set out five priority areas for spending and that previous plans had led to “the delivery of more capital projects within Aberdeenshire which in turn improves the local infrastructure and economy”.
The new programme outlines money for measures such as street lighting, public transport and carbon reduction projects.
Harbour and coastal flooding works amounting to £22.7million are also among the proposed initiatives, under the theme of jobs and the economy.
Macduff councillor Mark Findlater, whose ward has been badly affected by flooding over the past year, said he hoped the capital plan would bring lasting improvements to residents.
“A fair bit of that is going to be spent on Macduff because it’s the only commercial harbour that Aberdeenshire Council owns,” he told the Press and Journal.
“£4million will also be spent on leisure facilities for Macduff and Banff. We’re committed, as ever, to delivering replacement facilities there.”
The future of leisure provision in both towns has been in doubt since supermarket giant Tesco pulled out of plans to build a new store in Banff in January.
A condition of the purchase of the land was that facilities would be built at Canal Park to replace those that would be lost as a result of the development.
Aberdeenshire Council chief executive Colin Mackenzie said Tesco would be involved in finding a “satisfactory” way forward.
Elsewhere, £187million will be spent on lifelong learning, £21million on sustainable environment projects, £135million on corporate improvements, and £69million on upgrading, maintaining and providing community facilities.
