New plans for Cornhill Hospital site in Aberdeen

Post Thumbnail

Plans to redevelop part of the former Royal Cornhill Hospital grounds in Aberdeen have been tabled with the city council.

Cala Homes (North) confirmed yesterday that it has lodged an application to build 46 flats at May Baird Avenue.

The proposal includes 46 flats in three blocks at the old Ross Clinic and Gardeners Cottage section of the site.

The properties would be a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments on what the developer described as currently “neglected and unkempt” land.

Mike Naysmith, managing director for Cala Homes (North), said: “We have carefully planned this proposed development to be in keeping with and enhance the wider surroundings of the Conservation Area.

“High quality apartments are much sought after in Aberdeen so we anticipate that this development, if granted planning approval, will prove exceptionally popular and help to meet this demand.

“The apartments at May Baird Avenue will feature generous layouts, balconies and terraces, and considered landscaping – all just a mile from the city centre – creating a very attractive option for home hunters.”

The development is for a separate area of land that was subject to plans put forward by NHS Grampian, Stewart Milne Homes and Barratt North Scotland.

The joint application for 300 homes was rejected in September last year before it reached councillors on the planning development management committee.

Officials at the local authority are understood to have voiced concerns about the loss of granite in what is part of the Rosemount and Westburn conservation area.

Stewart Milne Homes said at the time that the company remains “very keen” to develop the site and are in discussions about revising the plans to fit with the council’s requirements.

An earlier £16million proposal from the north-east house-builder to build 150 properties at the site fell through in February 2003.

Another plan was mooted by Standard Life investments, but met local opposition and collapsed in 2005.

In November last year, about 70 firefighters were called to a blaze at the derelict NHS Grampian site, near the Berryden Retail Park on Berryden Road.

The plans from Cala for the May Baird Avenue section are expected to be considered by members of the council’s planning development management committee at a later date.

If granted approval, Cala said that work could begin on site in the autumn.
