New homes to be built at site of former Aberdeen school

PLANNING permission has been granted for a 99-home development at the site of a former Aberdeen primary school.

The city’s local authority agreed unanimously to the proposals which will see 99 new council flats and houses be built at Craighill in Kincorth.

The Craighill development is one of several across the city and forms part of the wider Aberdeen City Council housing programme 2020, which aims to address the long-term shortage of affordable social rented housing in the city.

Aberdeen City Council housing spokesperson, councillor Sandra Macdonald, said, “It is great that planning permission has been granted for the new homes at Craighill.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the flats and houses starting to be built and I’m sure local residents in the Craighill area will be watching the progress too.”
