Public gets say on major Crichie plans

PLANS for the proposed creation of 75 new homes at Knock View near Stuartfield will go on public display tomorrow (Wednedsay).

Local housebuilder Colaren Properties have tabled the major plans for the rural site.

The Aberdeen office of property consultants Knight Frank and MacAdam Design have produced the blueprint for the land at Knock View and will be showcasing them at the public consultation event in Stuartfield Village Hall from 2pm until 6.30pm.

Members of the public and other interested parties are invited to view the plans, with representatives of the landowners on hand to answer questions.

Knight Frank planner Gary Purves said: “In line with the emerging Local Development Plan for Aberdeenshire, a masterplan has been prepared for the creation of up to 75 homes over the next 10 years. Up to 50 of those houses would be in the first phase and the proposals would help meet a real demand for new properties in this area of the North-east.

“There will be associated infrastructure including roads, landscaping and drainage, plus land reserved for sport and recreation and a new health centre.”

The public exhibition is open to all and will give the public an opportunity to provide the business with constructive feedback on the proposals which will help to shape the finalised masterplan for the development.”

Anyone who would like to obtain further information about the forthcoming exhibition can contact Gary Purves, Planner with Knight Frank, on 01224 644272.
