Around 100 homes could be built on a former paper mill site as part of plans for a new urban neighbourhood in Aberdeen.

Barratt Homes want to build up to 101 properties on the Davidson’s Mill site in Bucksburn, as part of the ongoing effort to redevelop the brownfield land.

The project has been underway since 2011, with the first phase involving the construction of The Plaza – a block of 49 two-bedroom apartments.

Now Barratt has applied for planning permission in principle to build the homes on Mugiemoss Road and Goodhope Road.

A design statement released by agents Halliday Fraser Munro suggests the proposals will “provide a new urban residential neighbourhood with commercial and leisure facilities as a varied series of legible spaces that the residents and wider community can turn into meaningful places.”

It adds the development will “create a distinctive and appropriate addition to the city, providing a permeable urban grain which clearly defines public and private spaces.”

Alongside the homes, a neighbourhood square would be created with a children’s play area and a public art installation before the last dwelling home is built.

The buildings would be predominantly two storey family homes.

The team behind the scheme have also vowed to create access for pedestrians and vehicles with other parts of the development and other nearby public spaces.

Davidson’s Mill closed in 2005 and Aberdeen City Council released a framework to redevelop the site in 2011.

A statement at the time said it was aiming for a mixed-use development, of between 700 and 900 homes and 21,527sq ft of retail, service and community facilities.

It added: “The former Davidson’s Mill has the opportunity to become a significant new district of the city integrating with the existing community at Bucksburn. The site offers a the opportunity to create a new and exciting relationship with the River Don whilst regenerating an important brownfield site in a sustainable way.”
