Plans to create a new care home in the west of Aberdeen and 30 affordable houses in Kingswells face being knocked back by councillors.
The local authority’s planning committee will meet on Thursday to discuss proposals to build a 21-bedroom care home near Craigden and 30 affordable houses on the Old Lang Stracht at Kingswells.
Planning officers have completed reports urging councillors to reject both applications.
On the care home, which received 18 letters of objection, officers said that developer Rubislaw Estate Ltd’s plan would result in an “unacceptable impact” on the privacy of local residents and lead to the loss of “valued green open space and trees”.
The report added: “It would create a tension between trees and future residents that is likely to result in the loss of further trees in the future.”
Meanwhile, on the affordable housing proposals put forward by Carnoustie Links Development Ltd, officers wrote that the homes would be built on green belt land meaning a “significant departure” from the council’s own guidelines.
The report states: “The proposal would serve to erode the area of green belt between Kingswells and the Lang Stracht and would set an undesirable precedent for the development of areas between existing settlements.”
Plans to build six flats on Bedford Road, forwarded by George Taylor ASA, have been recommended for approval by the local authority.
