Newmachar plans revealed

LOCAL people will have the chance to find out more about the future growth and development of Newmachar at a consultation exhibition on Wednesday, March 28 between 3pm and 8pm at Newmachar Hotel.

Following feedback Kirkwood Homes and Stewart Milne Homes have prepared a revised Development Framework, to illustrate how land identified in the Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan 2012 can be developed over time, and these ideas will be shared with the community.

The plans propose a mix of high quality and sustainable family homes that will complement and integrate with the surrounding area. The development, which will be completed in two phases, is also intended to deliver local amenities and employment land for commercial development.

The draft Development Framework will be submitted to Aberdeenshire Council in May 2012, with the first phase of the site expected to be complete by 2016 and the second phase by 2023.
