Plans have been submitted for more than 80 homes in an expanding Aberdeen suburb.
Cala Homes (North) has put forward proposals for a scheme of 82 homes which, if approved by the city council, would be built in Cults.
The site, located north of Kirk Brae, would lead on from the firm’s current Cults Park development.
Since May 2014, 160 home buyers have moved into the company’s homes in the area.
Cults, along with other communities to the south of the city, has expanded massively in recent years.
In January, plans to build hundreds of affordable homes in nearby Peterculter were unveiled by First Endeavour LLP.
The development would sit on the outskirts of the city council’s boundaries, bordering Bucklerburn Road and the B979 Malcolm Road.
To the north of the city, areas like Bridge of Don, Dyce and Bucksburn have also been hugely expanded over recent decades with hundreds of homes added.
Ross Maclennan, land director at Cala Homes (North), said: “We have submitted plans for a collection of homes north of Kirk Brae in Cults.
“The new development would be the latest in a carefully planned out series of Cala sites in the area, including the current Cults Park and Craigton Mews developments.
“Not only are these two neighbourhoods continuing to flourish, but we’ve built strong relationships with the local schools and businesses through our commitment to investing in Cults.
“We look forward to receiving a decision from Aberdeen City Council in due course.”
Hazlehead, Queens Cross and Countesswells councillor Martin Greig, while not commenting on the application, said the suburb of Cults had a distinct identity away from that of Aberdeen itself.
He said: “Cults has experienced some large changes and expansion in recent years.
“It aspires to be a separate community with a different identity to that of the city.
“Some recent developments have not complied with what residents have wanted for the area.”
