Barratt progress housing plan for Aberdeen paper mill
A former paper mill in Aberdeen is to be converted to make way for 950 homes after developer Barratt signed a £30m agreement with landowner Manse.

The deal unlocks a project which has sat on the back burner for five years, forming a new riverside quarter named Burnside around Davison’s Paper Mill and land to the south of Muggiemoss Road.

Designed by Optimised Environments the scheme will incorporate a range of terraced and detached homes on ex industrial lands overlooking the River Don.

Located four miles from Aberdeen city centre it will offer a range of three and four bedroom homes catering for oil workers.

Planning consent was initially given back in 2013 for an initial phase of 121 homes by Stewart Milne.

"...it will offer a range of three and four bedroom homes catering for oil workers." Ah yes, but how will they ensure that only oil workers stay in the area? Perhaps armed guards could keep the riff raff out?

Scheme looks to be a good one but the lazy description above, whether from the developers or Urban Realm, is laughable.
