Success in Aberdeenshire as major commercial centre approved

May 1st 2017

Scott Hobbs Planning (SHP) has secured a resolution to grant planning permission in principle (PPP) for the commercial element of the mixed use settlement expansion of Blackdog, to the north of Aberdeen. Aberdeenshire Council’s Formartine Area Committee confirmed Minded to Grant consent, subject to the completion of a planning obligation related to developer contributions.

The planning application was submitted by SHP in March 2016, following pre-application consultation with Aberdeenshire Council, for the mixed used commercial development, which will consist of a new town centre including a regional food hall, retail, leisure and Class 3 uses; business and industrial uses (Classes 4, 5 and 6); alterations to access from A90 roundabout and other infrastructure works.

The proposal by Ashfield Land will be a significant boost to the Aberdeen economy, acting as a hub for the strategic Energetica corridor, connecting directly to the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR).
