Plans have been lodged for 43 homes and two business units on land near Udny Station in Aberdeenshire.
Similar proposals were formed, then withdrawn, last year by MRT Architects and JNF Developments.
The fresh scheme has been devised following discussions with council officers, and the number of homes planned has been slightly reduced from 46 and 43.
The development would be created on an open field near to Udny Station Road, and comprise of three and four-bedroom homes.
Developers hope that, if approved, the site will address a “local demand” in the area,
Planning documents state: “The design and scale of the development within the site respect the character and architectural style of the surrounding village using wet dash render, concrete tiled roofs and reconstituted stone features and window surrounds.
“The proposed layout has been developed to address the site with reference made to its context and local demand for housing within a rural village, and for the provision of dedicated employment land, as allocated within the current local plan.
“The houses would blend naturally with the established landscape character and
vernacular of the area, and provide characterful, modern additions to the village.”
A footpath link connecting the development to the Formartine and Buchan Way has also been incorporated into the plans.
