Aberdeen City Council submits plans for more than 200 homes

Aberdeen City Council has submitted plans to build 212 homes for rent on the site of Kincorth Academy.

The development will comprise of a mix of unit types with shared residential streets, parking and external amenities.

A public consultation to discuss the proposals will take place, however, a date is yet to be confirmed by the council. 

A virtual consultation will also be held so members of the community who can’t attend have the opportunity to review and comment on the project.

Kincorth Academy closed in summer 2018 after a new multi-million-pound school was built at Lochside, bringing together pupils from Kincorth and Torry, The Press and Journal reports. 

Demolition on the old school began last summer, but was stopped in August when asbestos was found in the roof.

The Torry Academy site is expected to become a new community centre.
