Build of 600 new homes eyed in Buckie as long-term expansion plans unveiled

A long-term expansion plan has been published for the seaside town of Buckie, which includes proposals for the build of 600 new homes.

Moray Council’s blueprint would also see the potential for a new primary school and community facility build, creation of shops, parks, allotments and a network of walking and cycling.

A consultation has been launched on the plans, which will close at 5pm on Monday 15 March.

Chair of the Moray Council planning and regulatory services Committee, councillor David Bremner, said “The chance to contribute to the plans for a new and complete neighbourhood in Buckie is one I hope local folk will take up with the usual passion they have for their local area. We have a fantastic opportunity to build the foundations of a community-led neighbourhood development and I look forward to this masterplan coming back to committee following input from locals.”
