£150m Aberdeenshire leisure destination secures green light
April 27 2017Blackdog, Aberdeenshire, has cleared planning, following hot on the heels of a housing scheme on the same site put forward by Kirkwood Homes.
The latest approval clears the way for phased construction of a food hall, retail, cinema, hotel, leisure and business facilities over the coming decade on land off the new Aberdeen Western peripheral Route, serving as a gateway to the Energetica development corridor.
North East regional director for the Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI), Ian Armstrong commented, “A key goal for the region is to diversify its economic base and SCDI welcomes the Blackdog plans with their focus on an attractive town centre, including a food hall to showcase the region’s rich larder.”
The food hall will be used to showcase produce from farms and producers from around the north east with a view to appealing to both locals and tourists.
A network of walking and cycling routes will connect the development to an existing village centre.
