Dandara lodges housing plans to supplement Aberdeen development

Dandara has submitted proposals to build more than 200 homes as part of a wider housing development in Aberdeen.

Plans lodged with Aberdeen City Council will see the 216 homes developed on a site south of Hazledene Road, on the western outskirts of Countesswells.

A design statement for the application said it introduces smaller homes more suited to smaller families and individuals within the wider Pinewood and Hazledene development, while also retaining the larger family homes.

It said: “Following a review of the accommodation previously provided, it was felt the dwellings should range from two-bedroom apartments through to five-storey detached dwellings but with a greater emphasis on smaller-occupation dwellings.

“There can be no doubt the unit mix proposed, in addition to that already delivered, provides a much greater variety of housing choice and type, which caters to all aspects of the market including single people, families, elderly and disabled.”

The housebuilder added: “The development proposed has been designed to the highest standard to ensure it is sympathetic to the existing residential area buildings while complementing and providing an attractive addition to the local area. It would also encourage sustainable travel.”

The latest proposed housing development would be spread across five different development zones.

If the plans are approved, this would increase the total number of homes within the wider site to 479.
