Aberdeen key worker housing hits planning snag
July 11 2016
Conceived by Halliday Fraser Munro and Grampian Housing Association the project was intended to provide much needed accommodation for hospital staff, emergency workers and teachers.
Objecting to the scheme however planners voiced concern at the detrimental impact on the area’s character and green space.
Craig Stirrat, director of business development at Grampian Housing Association, commented: “It is extremely disappointing that Aberdeen City Council’s planning officers are recommending refusal of our joint development with NHS Grampian at Foresterhill Court.
“In particular, the development would help NHS Grampian address its staffing shortage which is linked to the lack of affordable housing within the city for key workers.”
Councillors will have the final say over whether the scheme should be progressed at a meeting on Thursday.
