130 new affordable homes planned for Aberdeen

Plans have been submitted to Aberdeen City Council for the development of 130 affordable homes on the bank of the River Dee.

Stewart Milne Homes wants to build the properties on the site of a former pipe yard on Abbotswell Road.

The plans supplant a previously approved project for a 100-home development, which included only 24 affordable flats.

But the developer has said it now intends to provide a 100% affordable development due to “changing market conditions” and a “desire to deliver much needed affordable housing”.

Mackie Ramsay Taylor Architects said the individual properties will benefit from enhanced space standards for wheelchair users while a green belt of planting will be used to blend the homes in with neighbouring Duthie Park.

This will be threaded with new pedestrian links to improve connectivity in this part of the city.
