Construction begins on new supermarket near Stonehaven

FM Group has announced work is underway at its new 40,364 sq ft supermarket on the Ury Estate site, just outside Stonehaven

Developers were granted planning permission in principle for the supermarket and associated infrastructure, and were presented with a list of conditions to be met before the project could move forward.

FM Group has been given the go-ahead by Aberdeenshire Council after successfully meeting the requirements.

Jonathon Milne, director of FM Group said, “This clears all the planning conditions on the retail consent that we had previously, and what this means is it allows us to start work on the site, and we started on Friday. It’s all good news, and there’s lots of really positive things happening around Ury, so we’re feeling really pleased with how everything is progressing right now. We’ve been working away on a lot in the background. The supermarket could be ready towards the end of next year.”
