Kirkwood Homes Investments Limited held three days of Public Exhibitions last week in Kintore and Inverurie to outline initial proposals for the regeneration and expansion of the former Inverurie Paper Mill site, now known as Kirkwood Commercial Park.
Members of the public were able to view the proposed plans for the expansion of the Commercial Park Northwards, to meet the growing demands of the business community, as well as a small scale Energy from Waste (EfW) facility utilising the best available techniques.
Commenting on the Exhibition, Allan Rae, Kirkwood Homes Investments Ltd said: “Whilst the turnout was lower than we expected, those who did come along and view the proposals were very pleased to hear that the site is being brought back into active economic use. The overall view of the northern expansion and the EfW was positive, with attendees realising that new opportunities for local jobs and investment could be delivered via this development.
“As we have outlined from the outset, it is important that the local community and all stakeholders have an opportunity to view and comment on our proposals. We will therefore be holding another round of exhibitions in October and will keep the community informed when further details are available.”
