Aberdeen Council reveals more details on Torry development

ABERDEEN City Council has unveiled an image and further information on a new community hub for the Torry area of the city.

The Torry Hub – which Aberdeen City Council has set £20 million aside for – will include a primary school as well as early years provision. The 434-pupil capacity school will be joined by a café, library and community space within the project area.

Currently in the design and development phase, Aberdeen City Council have set up an online consultation platform which allows for locals to have their voices heard in plans. The next consultation will be held on July 26, with previous findings showing a desire for more community activities and spaces to be made available.

Aberdeen City Council regeneration spokesman Councillor Gordon Graham said, “It is great we’re now at the stage of having a design and more details available for people to view and comment on. This is a development that the community have wanted for several years and we are delighted to be delivering it for them. Having the new facilities all under one roof will make a real and tangible difference to local people and it’s exciting we’re now at this stage.”

No commencement or completion date has been given for the development, but it is one of the projects within the Torry Locality Improvement Plan – which is expected to be completed as a whole by 2027.
