Developers behind a major housing scheme want to add more than 120 homes to the site.
Planning permission for 611 houses at Uryside, Inverurie was granted in 2013.
However, now developers Barratt East Scotland hope to change the original agreement with Aberdeenshire Council so it can build a further 123 dwellings.
The Boynds Farm section of the site was originally earmarked for commercial purposes.
However, the land has been on the market for more than two years and has received “no serious offers”, prompting the switch to domestic properties.
The developers said the additional homes would address a shortage of affordable accommodation in the area.
The proposals, if approved, would be the latest expansion of a wider project at Uryside and Portstown, taking it to 1,186 homes.
The scheme, which is being built by Barratt and Malcolm Allan Housebuilders, was originally thrown out by the council in 2011.
However following an appeal to the Scottish Government this decision was overturned in 2012.
Work on the project, which is expected to take more than 10 years to complete, began in 2014.
The scheme will also include a new £11million primary school, Uryside Primary, which is expected to be open by the autumn.
The school will have space for 540 pupils and will include 19 classrooms, three rooms for children with additional support needs, a nursery, library and staff office space as well as an amphitheatre for outdoor teaching and multi-use games area.
Last night, Barratt said their latest plans would help provide “quality” homes for the area.
Douglas McLeod, regional managing director for Barratt Scotland, said: “The application looks to address the current housing market needs within Aberdeenshire, where the demand is for starter and family homes, whilst also supporting the Scottish Government Help to Buy programme.
“It also follows on from recently approved application for similar properties at Osprey Heights, which were supported and commended by Aberdeenshire Council for providing quality family homes within the Inverurie area.”
