Plans progress for Aberdeen’s Broadford Works
Rental accommodation specialists Inhabit have fleshed out their proposals to breathe new life into outline proposals for Aberdeen’s Broadford Works with the submission of plans for 460 homes and 430 student flats within the sprawling city centre industrial site.

Accommodation will be peppered with offices, shops, restaurants and cafes all connected by a network of landscaped routes helping to weave the forgotten quarter back into the fabric of the city.

Ana Nekhamkin, managing director of Inhabit, said: “In preparation for the submission of this planning application we have worked closely with Aberdeen City Council, Historic Environment Scotland, local residents and businesses to create an environment that is sensitive to the unique character of the buildings within Broadford Works and creates a dynamic and inclusive project to the benefit of Aberdeen.”

Stretching to 590,000sq/ft the Sheppard Robson scheme would revitalise a collection of historic buildings which have lain disused since 2004, although 40% of the A-listed Grey Mill, the oldest iron framed mill in Scotland, would have to be demolished.
