A community council says plans to improve their seaside town do not reflect the views of the majority of residents living there.
Stonehaven and District Community Council (SDCC) has criticised the 2016 Local Development Plan (LDP), saying it is “already outdated”.
Members of the community council have now drawn up an official response to the LDP which will be submitted to Aberdeenshire Council later this week.
The proposed plan, outlining areas of development for Stonehaven, went before councillors in March before going out to public consultation.
The deadline for comments is Friday.
SDCC says plans for the growing town should include a site suitable for a large supermarket as well as land to build a new primary school and refurbish Mackie Academy.
It has also called for the removal of further windfarm and fracking developments to the south of the town and more affordable housing.
Other suggestions include a stunning civic square regneration programme for the town’s Market Square and plans to retain Stonehaven Harbour as a working port rather than a commercial enterprise.
SDCC has also made a case for land to the north of the town to be turned into a technology, scientific and marine park.
SDCC’s planning spokesman, Phil Mills-Bishop said: “We don’t think this local plan represents what the majority of residents want.
“There is a unanimous feeling that the council is not listening.
“We have constantly said we want a large supermarket.
“Now we will put forward our arguments and they will look at them and either accept them or not.
“This is what local people want to see.”
Mr Mills-Bishop also urged residents to comment on the plan before Friday’s deadline.
He said: “This is the last chance for people to make their views known before the plan is set in stone.”
The community council has also pledged to ask the Scottish Government to carry out an inquiry into the council’s LDP for the area if its comments are not included in the final plan.
