Holiday chalets delayed for site visit

A HATTON couple will have to wait to find out if they will obtain full planning consent for the formation of a chalet park in the village.

The application from Mr and Mrs Henderson of Yonderton Farm, went before members of the Buchan Area Committee on September 13 and detailed a 16-chalet development as well as the erection of a house at the site and ancillary buildings on land at Greenheads.

The 16 chalets will be laid out around a central pond which will be formed in the middle of the site and comprise of a mixture of two and three bedroom units.

A total of 54 letters from 32 properties have been received, and of the 32 representations, 9 are objecting.

Concerns raised by planning officials suggested that the development would lack a mature setting.

Councillor Pratt told the committee how he felt a site visit was needed which was agreed by other members.
