Childcare demand gives rise to a new Aberdeen nursery

Halliday Fraser Munro is requesting planning permission in principle to erect a 750sq/m children's nursery at Craigton Road, Aberdeen, on behalf of Kingswellies Nursery and Drum Real Estate Investment Management.

Located to the east of Northcote Lodge Care Home on designated green belt land the development will share an existing access road, including an enclosed garden and a 32-space car park. Accommodating up to 120 children the nursery would cater for the growing childcare demand in the area.

In a planning statement, the applicant observed: "...the site is of low ecological value, low landscape value, and is not currently available for recreational access. The proposal would not erode the green space network (GSN), as there would remain a significant area of green space, which connects with the GSN to the north. The green space network in this location does not contribute to access or recreation, and the ecological survey demonstrates there is minimal ecological value.

"The proposed nursery in this location would meet a gap in existing childcare provision, and help to support Aberdeen City Council to deliver early learning childcare, in line with Scottish Government funded hours."

A single-storey building is proposed subject to detailed design work.

#2, show me where, with that render, you are concealing your internal gutters? Come on, read the perspective and understand material intersections - basic stuff really. Eh?

Also, it's HFM, There is no wizardry or architectural ingenuity at play. They just haven't been considered.

I'll give you a hand if you are struggling - they aren't all on the other side.
