Public consultation on western expansion of Aberdeen gets underway
Aberdeen City Council have launched a public consultation on plans for a mixed-use urban expansion of Aberdeen on 166ha of greenfield land to the west of the city, accommodating 3,000 homes and 10ha of employment land.

The Countesswells master plan, prepared by Optimised Environments, calls for the creation of two primary schools, playgrounds and sport pitches around a mixed-use town centre.

Individual neighbourhoods will be designed to have a ‘unique identity’ with densities averaging 30 dwellings per hectare and a quarter of all homes classed as ‘affordable’.

A large central park fringed by higher density housing would be created as a focal point and meeting place.

Responses to the consultation are invited via pi@aberdeencity.gov.uk prior to noon on 29 April.
A network of public pathways will be created to connect with surrounding woodland
