Aberdeen council housing scheme recommended for approval

Council planners have recommended that plans for around 300 council homes in Aberdeen should go ahead.

Planners gave the nod to a revised proposal from First Endeavour LLP to build 283 flats at Wellshead Road in Dyce across four five-storey blocks, the Press & Journal reports.

The original plan was for 302 flats to be built across five blocks, but the proposal was revised following objections from the local community.

Aberdeen City Council’s planning committee will meet on Thursday to make a final decision on the scheme.

A report from council planners states: “The provision of affordable homes is welcomed and would contribute towards the council’s aim of providing more affordable homes as identified in the strategic business plan.

“Additionally, the mix of units proposed has been shaped by the requirements of the council housing waiting list, with specific focus on families.

“Internal noise limits can be achieved, as a result of significant mitigation measures and when measured with windows closed (albeit external noise is generally at the very limit of acceptability). Acceptable external noise levels can be achieved in many of the identified amenity areas, although significant sections would not.”
