Aberdeenshire CouncilAberdeenshire Council’s new build housing programme took a step forward yesterday as councillors welcomed 95 more new affordable homes across the region.

A report presented to the local authority’s social work and housing committee detailed plans for phase 6 of the initiative which is part of a £40 million Scottish Government scheme.

Under the plans, which will run through 2018, 38 homes will be created in Peterhead, 12 will be built in Turriff and six will be constructed in Fraserburgh.

Director of infrastructure services Stephen Archer revealed new homes would also be built in Huntly, Oldmeldrum and Portlethen to bring the authority’s target to 95.

Work is expected to begin on the sites from next month.

In Peterhead, the proposed homes will be built in Clerkhill, where 210 houses have been given planning permission.
