Cala lodges bid for 117 new homes in Newmachar
Cala Homes (North) has submitted a planning application to Aberdeenshire Council for proposed new homes in the village of Newmachar.
The site on Corseduick Road would comprise 117 properties with 25% of the proposed homes affordable properties in line with planning requirements.
The housebuilder held a community consultation event in November to provide locals with the opportunity to see plans and share feedback.
Blair Maclennan, land buyer at Cala Homes (North), said: “We have submitted an application to create a new community in the charming village of Newmachar.
“The development would offer a fantastic opportunity, particularly for those looking to move to Aberdeenshire from the city.
“Newmachar is a great location for families and benefits from a range of local amenities and facilities, with good connectivity to key commuter routes. This is an exciting project and the first time Cala have looked to develop a site in Newmachar. We look forward to receiving a decision from Aberdeenshire Council in due course.
“The submission quickly follows applications we submitted in December for the fourth phase of our Grandhome development and second and third phases of homes at Conglass, Inverurie. This is all tied to our land strategy for the region, which includes an ongoing search for new land opportunities in 2023 and beyond.
“We are actively looking for land which has the potential for residential development, ideally with 30 units or more. This will allow us to create thriving communities in sustainable growth areas.
“Our focus is on key commutable areas across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, including Ellon, Inverurie, Westhill, Banchory and Stonehaven.”
