Plans for the next phase of homes to be built at Maidencraig South have been lodged with Aberdeen City Council by luxury homebuilder, Bancon Homes.
The proposal is for 208 homes on the site, which is opposite Dobbies Garden Centre, at the Western edge of Aberdeen. This is the latest phase of an approved masterplan which comprises a residential development of approximately 825 homes plus provisions for commercial and retail outlets.
The plans are for a mix of housing types with 172 private homes ranging from two to four bedroom apartments, terraced, semi-detached and detached homes, in addition to 36 affordable homes.
In the earlier phases Bancon Homes completed 128 homes at its developments at Eden and The Reserve and it currently has a development of 40 units on the north side of the Lang Stracht at its Roses at Eden development.
As part of the company’s planning obligations, the company will contribute approximately £1m to the local economy, in addition to the provision of affordable housing. This will help to fund community, healthcare and school facilities in the area as well as improve roads and upgrade the core path network.
Bancon Homes managing director Allan Clow said: “These are very difficult times for us all and being in a home you love has never been more important. We are therefore, delighted to apply for planning permission for the next phase of our new homes to the west of Aberdeen. This location has already proved popular with young families, couples and downsizers who have benefitted from its unique mix of fantastic connectivity and countryside views.”
