Housebuilder granted approval for more Countesswells homes

Some 7,000 people will live in 3,000 new homes once the whole Countesswells community is complete

STEWART Milne Homes is to build 121 more properties at Aberdeen’s Countesswells after planning permission was approved for a range of two, three and four-bedroom houses.

The new phase will be known as Jubilee Walk, with the housebuilder confirming work is expected to start “imminently”.

The move follows the success of the first neighbourhood, Regency Place, which is home to over 160 families and features landscaped grounds including the Cults Burn Park, a playpark and community orchard.

John Low, managing director of Stewart Milne Homes said, “There has been significant interest in Countesswells since the vision for the community was first unveiled and this has resulted in consistently high levels of sales since our launch almost two years ago. We are seeing renewed confidence in the wider Aberdeen market and in response to market demand we are focusing on building a number of smaller homes at Jubilee Walk. We anticipate strong interest in these properties which will further extend the choice available to people wishing to be part of the exceptional new community at Countesswells.”
