The Buchan public will get a chance to see plans for the proposed South Ugie Village development on the outskirts of Peterhead.

An exhibition is being hosted by consultants Knight Frank at the town’s Palace Hotel on Wednesday, March 12 from 2-8pm.

It was first unveiled several years ago after discussion between Knight Frank and landowners including Susan Baxter and Buchan Brothers, but next week’s public consultation will unveil fresh proposals for the 200-acre site.

The mixed use residential development also features a new school, health facility and new businesses.

Comments are being sought on the proposal - which will help shape the final blueprint for the housing and community development - by Wednesday, March 26.

Feedback provided at this stage will not be representations to Aberdeenshire Council’s planning department - further opportunity will be available once an application is formally submitted.

Malcolm Campbell of Knight Frank said the company was finalising a masterplan which it would submit to planners in the coming months.

If it gets the backing of local councillors, the major new development on the western periphery of the town could begin as early as next year.

Draft plans for the existing proposals got the green light from the Buchan Area Committee back in October last year and would see up to 1,265 houses and some new businesses created during the development’s lifetime.
