Canadian property developers who want to build a massive 250-flat scheme at the edge of Aberdeen’s famous Rubislaw Quarry will give councillors a first glimpse of their plans next week.
Carttera plans to construct the one, two and three-bedroom flats, a gym, a public bistro and promenade along the north side of the water-filled site.
They have come back to the drawing board after their previous plans for 300 flats were thrown out by the council’s planning committee and then refused again by the Scottish Government on appeal.
The original scheme proved highly contentious and attracted more than 350 objections, with residents fearing the height of the buildings would block their views and increase traffic to an unacceptable level.
A consultation event has already been held and, next Thursday, the firm will discuss their plans at a special pre-application forum meeting.
Following the meeting, planning bosses will scrutinise the scheme.
